Slice: Candidate endorsement letters

In his Slice blog, Paul Turner asks:

If you were the editor and someone suggested discontinuing the practice of running letters to the editor endorsing political candidates, what would you say?

A) "Yes, of course. Why didn't I think of that?" B) "No. If they sign their names, people have a right to say what they think." C) "I'm busy. Go away." D) "No. Readers need a chance to disagree with our own endorsements." E) Other.

Question: Your choice?
