Pitch us ideas, and pitch as often as you want. It could be for one story or a series that will run until we’re all too old to type. Don’t be shy. We’re open to new ideas about what to cover.

We depend on tips and ideas from our readers. Please don’t hesitate to send us your tips, photos and other intel. We respect your privacy and anonymity if so desired. In fact, we basically assume you want to be known as “Anonymous” unless you tell us otherwise.
