Here's a Letter to the Editor we sent to Main Line Suburban Life that they published in the April 27 issue. You could do it.  See local media addresses in the right-hand column.

Pulitzer Prize-winning Pro Publica tells us that last week's House vote to cut spending included a $768 million cut in FEMA funds for first responders.  That's a 19% drop from last year's level.  Congressman Meehan is proud of his support of the Boeing Corporation and its pricey contract for the Pentagon's Osprey vertical take-off airplane.  How does he justify cutting funds for the firemen and police and EMT's who will constitute our real security in a disaster?  There are some mistaken priorities here.
