From the City of Lake Worth to our friends in the Town of Jupiter: Are you missing one of your clowns?

At the end of this post are instructions on how to write a Letter to the Editor to the Post. To say it was a banner year for stupid letters is an understatement. The letters from Lake Worth were especially cringe-worthy.

This letter that appeared today (11/30) titled, "How does one exit lot without backing?" from a fellow in Jupiter indicates just how starved for content the Post editors are for letters:
     I think it is very commendable that Lake Worth is taking a proactive stance in the interest of the safety of their beach-goers and posting “No backing” signs in the beach parking lots.
     My only concern is that I have had to abandon my car in one of their lots because of not being able to figure out how to get it out of the parking space without backing up.
Maybe Lake Worth should send our own "Weetha Peebull" to Jupiter on a cultural mission. She can return the poor fella's car as a favor. Anyhow, enough of this frivolity, here is how you get a letter published in the Post:

Send a letter to the editor: (Letters are subject to editing and must include the writer’s name, address, e-mail address and daytime phone number. Preferred length is a maximum of 200 words.)
