Time Commitment Needed: About 1 hour or less
Send the letters by Wednesday/Thursday. Many papers also allow you to email the letters.

NY Daily News
Newsday (Long Island)

Points to Emphasize: I feel that when everyone is concerned about recession (such as right now), it is a good time to bring up Ron Paul's message about limited government, living within our means, monetary policy, and keeping an out of control government out of our lives. Another good topic is the state of the union address, as some papers (like the Wall Street Journal and the NY Times) require you to reference a recent article/editorial.
I will post some sample letters tomorrow (Tuesday 1/29/2008)
