Opening Arguments

That is, er, will be really stupid

Out in Seattle, the people who run the editorial page have taken interactivity one step further. After the editorial board chooses a topic, it is posted, and readers are invited to send in comments before the editorial is written. The editor says some comments may show up as letters to the editor and some might even be quoted in editorials, though he admits that the pre-feedback probably won't change the editorial board's mind on anything. What do people here think? Is that a level of participation they'd like to have in the editorial-page process, or is it just a gimmick?
