There are stories all over the national media about the DeLay rule change, and I suspect that local dailies are carrying the Associated Press or other wire stories. I will post some talking points for letters to the editor, and a helpful link that allows you to submit letters to the editor on-line.
Here are some of the stories I scanned that I thought were insightful and good (some news, some editorial). If you have seen some, post your own.
