Please forgive the inevitable glitches, and as some readers have done, tell us what happened.Some early eagle eyes who have figured out the system are noticing their comments are not posted immediately.That’s because we have to edit them, just as we do letters to the editor.The Summit Daily News readers have come to enjoy a robust letters to the editor section that has fostered many community conversations.Recently, we’ve only just finished fighting out the November 2004 presidential election and have moved on to smoke shacks and the independent study program in the schools for competitive skiers and snowboarders.We think our letters reflect a highly engaged and dynamic community. This is one reason why it’s so much fun to give our readers a daily paper both in print and on the web, even when they have to spank us sometimes for a mistake or misjudgment.The comments section on our web edition is one more way we can help readers talk to each other, and us. The comments can be anonymous, unlike in the print editions, but readers are encouraged to register their names.As always, readers can submit signed letters for publication through our website.
