A couple of weeks ago, I'd finally had enough "signs" from the cosmos that it was time to finish my Letter to the Editor weighing in about marriage equality for same sex couples in Iowa. So I did.
Unfortunately, The Des Moines Register (largest newspaper in the state) tersely informed me that "space did not permit" it to publish my teeny, tiny, miniscule little 250 word letter. Space *did* permit it, however, to publish a rather large (with color picture of two rings intertwined) editorial condemning marriage equality just two weeks earlier. Huh.
Anywho, yay for Dubuque's Telegraph Herald (TH)! The TH has agreed to publish the letter, and it should appear at some point during the next 2-3 weeks. You can find TH letters by going to www.thonline.com, dragging the mouse over the "news" tab, and then clicking on "opinion."
