It’s a time-honored tradition for readers to submit a letter to the editor, whether voicing a complaint or praise. But I rarely, whether reading for pleasure or business, have I made it a point to read those letters — until now. It started out by accident. Reading an op-ed peice, another thing I rarely do because I don’t get involved on that side, I ran across a letter about * funding for a hospital in Covina. Intrigued, , I pointed it out to a reporter who later decided it was worth a further look. I now make reading the letters printed in our pages a daily ritual, because it’s one more way I know what you’re thinking and know what’s happening. So the tradition continues.
