Letters to the Editor
May 30, 2006'Britain's Last Hope'
I applaud your constant attention to the dire threat jihad Islam poses to Britain - and the U.S. [Daniel Freedman, "Britain's Last Hope," Opinion, May 25, 2006 and Daniel Johnson, "Letter from London," Opinion, May 25, 2006].
The New York Sun remains, sadly, one of the few newspapers in the country that eloquently and persistently reports on the collapse of Western elites in the face of this threat. I pray they're reading you in London.

It's the only letter they printed today, right next to a pic of Melanie Phillips (Londonistan) and below an essay by Mark Steyn, "Incumbistan" (run yesterday in the Chicago Sun-Times as "Gingrich revolutionaries turn into arrogant elite").
So, from op/edistan, ciao, bella!
I have had letters published in my local paper but local papers in England are not of the circulation of the New York Sun, and they are only interested in local issues.
However as the big local issue at the moment is the election of councillors representing the British National Party, local issues suddenly achieved national importance.
Good stuff - glad they printed it - and next to the great Mel P, too.
"Write your local papers" sounds slightly odd this side of the Atlantic - other people write my local paper, but I might write to it, on issues of local colour with a "u". Still, what's a preposition between cousins?
