OP: At least one responding poster views this letter in a different manner . Some may view this letter as a direct means to stir the ABA to take action. That is not how I view this letter & not likely to yield those type of direct results. The letter should be seen, in my opinion, as a means to indirectly force the ABA to action, or, if that organization fails to do so, then to prompt the public to demand legislative response. In order to be effective, therefore, the letter needs to be published in the NYT or WSJ or Huffington Post or, possibly, USA Today. In order to be published outside of the legal community, the letter needs to be clear both in outlining the judges concerns & remedies. Clarity & simplicity are key to editorialize these issues.
P.S. Try to limit the letter to one (1) page & no more than two issues. (Most editorials focus on just one (1) issue.) The shorter the length & the fewer issues discussed, the more likely that the letter will be carried in a major publication. Bluntly stated, if you confuse, you lose.
