Ellen writes:

I'm late on all my projects, I need a bloodhound to find the floor in my study, and my desk boasts a basket of letters from 5 years ago that I have yet to reply to.

So while I will certainly read incoming mail, I may not be able to send a personal reply to each one. However, if you give us permission, questions in your letter could be sporadically answered online in a forthcoming "Ask Ellen" section on the site, or on my LiveJournal blog. Write to:

(Note that letters to this edress may be read by my assistant, Katharine Duckett. This is good, because that way I don't lose things!)

Please indicate in your letter
• whether it's OK to print part or all of your letter on our site
• if so, how you'd like to be identified ("AJ from Ohio"? "Anonymous Donor"? …)
• and whether you'd like us to post your eddress for other readers to write to.
