I submitted this article to the Forum at the Journal Star on July 3.
I was told that Mike Bailey, editor of the Opinion section, killed my article. I e mailed Mr. Bailey and asked him why he decided not to print my article. I also asked him what I could do to revise it to survive his review.
I never received a response.
