For instance, we thought that the forum we've been offering in our "Letters to the Editors" might lend itself to thoughtful discussions of essays we've printed. And sometimes it does. But we also continue to receive a number of letters that seem to have lighter motives and include extra little tidbits of information. Like recipes.
