It's almost time for Christmas. And New Year's. And all sorts of other holidays that keep editors and page designers out of offices and printers out of print shops. Whee! I mean, the Journal regrets to inform you that we will have early deadlines for the next two weeks. Please email us your letters no later than 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 21, for our Dec. 26 edition and Friday, Dec. 28, for our Jan. 3 edition. As usual, please write no more than 300 words about something we've recently published, and include an address and a phone number where we can reach you that Friday morning. Happy holidays!
