Here's a question that has perplexed me for the last two weeks now in The Galloway Current: Why have two letters from skateboarders trying to get there point across get printed well over 600 words, when I and anyone else are limited to 300 words?

These two skateboarder support letters are almost an editorial. When will the rest of us with an important issue (at least to the writer) get that much latitude?

This is 77 words.
