My Opinion to be Heard

Briefly checking in from PDX here... While I was at OAK, I got a call from the Fremont Argus telling me that they wanted to use my letter, but it's too long -- there's a 200-word limit. So I talked to one of their people and we managed to trim enough words to bring it under spec. We dropped the "15 minute stops" paragraph entirely (as I expected; it's annoying but not part of the central argument) and one sentence elsewhere, and it fits. I reckon it may be in Saturday's paper or maybe a little later. I won't get the paper copy, of course, because I'm in Oregon, but I'll see it online.
