Have y'all considered a thread for an Op-Ed page?  That's the page in a newspaper opposite the editorials (hence the name, "Op-Ed") where people not part of the newspaper staff can submit commentaries and opinions on events.  

The reason I ask is because I wanted a place for Ebon to post a response to the whole "pro-human" movement, and figured the Post would be a good place if it had such a page.  :)  But I didn't want to create one just for me.

Letters to the Columns would work for that, no? At last check, the editor was named Michael Twert.

Letter columns are more for responses to stuff the newspaper prints, though, rather than as a commentary on events/news by someone unaffiliated with the paper.  So it's not quite the same.

A little late, but if I could second Ebon's suggestion...

I love the Post, and I always love to see new material here, and also understand getting swamped and sometimes having to go long periods without posting. That being said...

I like the idea of the Op-ed just because it kind of preserves the integrity of the newspaper by virtue of the fact that, as Ebon said, they're by people who have no association with the paper.  Which would be a good thing, given the number and variance in opinions that could be presented. Also, sometimes, you just want to throw down a big piece of text, and as a letter it can feel somehow inadequate.

In rather, loose and chaotic summation... anything that adds posts to the Post in a way that preserves the intent and integrity of the post is good, isn't it? Especially if it's hard to find time to work on it?  I can't say for sure if writing an Op-Ed is something I'd do myself, because it's all time permitting as well, but I have to admit that the idea is appealing to me - take that as either a compliment or a threat, as you see fit.

Excellent!  ;)  Though I've taken a different approach to things for now, I'm glad this exists!  :D

It was hinted to me that this was in the works...

But I also totally second this demand. Give us more!
