The Kent Stater and KentWired hope to encourage lively debate about the issues of the day on our opinion pages. Readers are encouraged to participate through letters to the editor and guest columns, which may also be submitted to Opinion Editor Adriona Murphy at email@example.com. Submissions become property of the Stater and KentWired and are subject to editing without notice. Opinions are the authors’ and not necessarily endorsed by the Stater, KentWired or their editors. You will be contacted if your letter or column is selected for publication.
