Not surprisingly, given that we are counting down to an election — and one sporting a monster ballot in Berkeley — the pace of op-ed submissions to Berkeleyside has picked up considerably.
In case you missed any recent viewpoints expressed by our readers, here’s a recap of the last 16 op-eds published in our Opinionator section. Share your responses and insights in the comments sections of the individual op-eds:

Berkeleyside welcomes submissions of op-ed articles. We ask that we are given first refusal to publish. Topics should be Berkeley-related, local authors are preferred, and we don’t publish anonymous pieces. We also ask that the op-eds are grounded in facts, not speculation or unsubstantiated accusations. Email submissions as Word or Google documents or embedded in the email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The recommended length is 500-800 words. Please include your name and a one-line bio that includes full, relevant disclosures. Berkeleyside will publish op-ed pieces at its discretion.
