Coming Soon: The Obama Issue 

Unless you're one of those folks who live in a remote cave and/or don't care about anything, chances are, the events of Jan. 20 will matter a great deal to you.

Of course, that's the date when Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States, and George W. Bush will head back to Texas.

I could discuss how I feel about this presidential transition, but, well, I won't. (Besides, if you read what I write on anything resembling a regular basis, you already know how I feel about Barack Obama and the nitwit who should have been impeached George W. Bush.)

However, I would like you, our readers, to have your say, positive or negative--and in our special Jan. 15-21 issue, we'll open our pages to you.

Feel free to express yourself however you want--with essays, poetry, short stories, drawings ... anything that can be printed on newsprint. All we ask is that you keep your word count to 300 words or so, that you include your name and contact information (so we can verify authorship), and that you get your submissions to us via e-mail by noon on Wednesday, Jan. 7. We can't promise we'll run everything we get, but we'll run as much of it as we can.

Questions? Drop me a line ... and thank you in advance for contributing to what promises to be a very special issue.
