I recently submitted a Letter to the Editor of the Charleston, SC Courier and News. It was rejected because I was not a SC resident, not a requirement to comply. I felt my entry was definitely timely with the then political climate. The entry is as follows: "Here in the incredible Southwest under the shadow of John McCain, a person's word is cast in stone. A lie is still a lie, especially when preserved on video. Unfortunately, Senator Graham has forgotten he swore an oath to the Constitution. And yes, a lie is still a lie." We are fortunate to live in Arizona where all opinions, regardless of origin, can be expressed. Whether they are shared or not, well, that's for another letter.
