    This is why I prefer writing letters to the editor than papers, as there can be pressure to say things one doesn't want to say for the latter.

    Saying that, I think papers are a lot more influential.

    Also, I remember one time having what I thought was a good letter turned down. I looked in to it and an awful lot of the papers included the editor's papers. My guess is they suggested it during the peer-review process. Now if I was submitting to that journal, I'd probably try to squeeze one or more of the editor's paper into a letter (or paper).
