I finally got a response to the letter to the editor that I sent in regarding the August 28 ammo buy. As I feared, my letter was sent too late to appear in the paper for that week. They could have printed it the following week but by that time it would have been too late.
However, the editor did invite me to write a follow-up letter, so I guess I'll need to put something together about activities on that day. I think it would be best to focus on the "hordes" of protesters that didn't actually show up for the protests.
So now I'll have to start combing through everyone's recent archives to gather the information.
My local paper is a weekly that covers the county I live in. I don't count any San Antonio papers as "local" because I don't live there.
Unlike most big-city papers, our little paper is focused on small town and rural happenings and is quite conservative in nature.
