Tell us about something that just drives you nuts. It could be something that people do, a movie that should have been burned when it was still in script form, even a weather pattern that is completely unacceptable in civilized society. What just flat-out makes you mad?
Q: What if someone else already posted what I was thinking of? Or what if someone else's comment made me change my mind about what I want to write about?
A: Then go with it! You can always bring something new to a topic that someone else started.
Q: Can I use this as a starter for my OpEd?
A: No, absolutely not. You must have strong opinions about two separate things.
Oh, wait, what I meant was "Yes, absolutely! Why do you think I picked this topic?"
Q: Do I HAVE to use this as a starter for my OpEd?
A: Nope. Not at all. Not even a little bit.
