Sorry if anyone has entered this thread expecting (or hoping for) sadomasochism! Although who knows -- it may end up in that direction .
I just wanted to thank the Hub Pages academy. Without the forums, where I've learned to (sometimes) argue persuasively, I would not have submitted my letter to the editor of our local newspaper. It was pretty exciting to see it published today. Of course, the paper also carried its own editorial on the same topic. My letter 100% matched their opinion. The letter below mine in the letters to the editor section takes the opposite view. Not at all unlike our forums -- only without the trolls !!
Well, it's not the New York Times or Wall Street Journal. Just our local McClatchy Publishing rag and the only daily in Sacramennto. Still, I was pretty tickled to see mine was picked. Thanks, all, for the well wishes. They mean a lot! MM
My letters were not anti-Obama. One was about women in politics and the other was asking people to support Obama after the election. I have copies if you'd like to read them. The other letters I've written to the editor had nothing to do with politics.

I want to thank Hubpages for allowing me to publish here. You were my first love for publishing online. I still haven't found another lover like you and can't seem to let you go. With all the arguments and disagreements...
I would like to thank everyone for the massive amount of e-mails when it came to the Top New Hubbers of 2009, if and when you get a chance check out the hub and congratulate them! Happy New Year to all!
I was so happy to check my traffic this morning, and noticed that I had earned over $1 for the first time. I felt like it was coming since I have earned .97 cents last week. I've never been this excited about earning a...
I can't tell you how nervous I am! It's truly a nerve-wracking experience to send your written baby out to be critized but I'm so sure that it's worth it. I mean, why else do so many of us do it? I know not to...
