Lately there has been conversation on the opinion page's responsibility in providing a forum for people with less than true "facts." I think an easy solution to this would be to limit each writer to two letters per year.


Kens Sims could tell everyone why his religion is the best twice a year, Ken Koehler could tie whatever issue people are talking about that day to abortion twice a year, Bette Grande could tell you why fossil fuels actually help climate change or whatever other lie she'll be paid to spread next twice a year.

I realize without these frequent writers there may be a lack of content, but if the opinion page was less an avenue for crackpots to spread lies perhaps more people would write.
