LETTER- Deliver the mail!

Okay, this is the second week in a row that your "mail" section (aka letters to the editor) has barely approached the size of a cocktail napkin. What gives?

I love reading reader mail, and I'm sure I'm not alone. Are people just not writing "mail"-worthy letters these days? Is the current crop of letters too provocative, too banal, or just plain too Charlottesville and not enough New York? 

Tell us what you want and we'll do it. But, please, don't skimp on the mail.
