Letters to the Editor Protocol?

Is there a journalistic protocol that newspapers adhere to when printing letters to the editor? The small town newspaper from where I grew up typically just posts a random assortment of letters from old codgers. However, in the last 3 years or so it has been posting, on an almost weekly basis, letters written by a local man who founded a very prominent White Nationalist organization, and who at one time was one of the most prominent neo-Nazis in America.

Articles about mortgage woes

Looking for online newspaper and magazine articles about people who've lost homes to the recent mortgage issues, whether it's because their rates skyrocketed, they were somehow defrauded, or they bought more house than they could afford for whatever reason (even stupidity or naivete). Articles from any city are great, but I'm seeking those that tell very personal stories, where the homeowner really opened up to the journalist about how they got into their situation. Anyone seen any lately? Thanks!

What are Web 2.0's effects on American politics?

I always hear that blogging and YouTube are (and/or will be) revolutionary in American politics. Is this true? How so? Can you recommend recent books, academic articles, extended blog posts and other media that demonstrate (or argue against) the effects of blogging, citizen journalism, social networking web sites and YouTube on American politics? Differing viewpoints would be appreciated!

Who's writing about the colossal squid this week?

I enjoy reading the Knight Science Journalism Tracker, an MIT website that gives timely peer review to popular science journalism. Can anyone recommend similar sites or blogs that do the same for other types of news. I'd love to find a site that uses a similar format to both cover world events and critique their coverage at the same time, for example.
