Opinion Editorial Articles

Newspaper "opinion-editorials" and "letters to the editor" are exercises that fine-tune a writing style.  At the same time, the articles provide an opportunity to share ideas with the public and gauge their support---it's a way of giving something back for the opportunity to do what I love.  Here are selected pieces:
