Have Your Say: Either blessed or cursed, depending upon your point of view, quite a few of my diatribes are being printed in the Have Your Say letters page in our local Daily Echo.
Sarmad uploads them onto the Published Letters heading in the Scrapbook section, if you ever feel the urge to while away some time.
You can, of course, short-circuit this and Search The Bournemouth Daily Echo and then Search my name, which will achieve the same result.
But I never read the paper with the intention of writing, I just read it, and if something doesn't fit; I write.
Some people might read whatever, and grumble their opinion to their other half, or a neighbour, and that's as far as it goes. But these days we don't even have to put pen to paper or buy a stamp; we can type it in an email and just click Send.
In many ways, our local newspapers depend upon feedback from their readership, so if you feel inclined, rather than mumble in your beard about something or other you have read; write, and Have Your Say, too.
