Yes. That's exactly what it is.You'll also find this type of article in your local or national newspaper on the opinion page under the terms Op-Ed, Commentary or Column.Sometimes they try to be witty and clever to make you laugh. Other times they try to be thought-provoking or insightful. Still other times they seek to stoke your rage or prompt a reaction.They make pretty good money and win lots of awards if they're good at it.They also have your kind of comments. They are called letters to the editor. They are usually written by 95-year-old men who scream at kids to get off their lawn and utter things like, "What's with the music today? Whatever happened to Lawrence Welk?" or by 95-year-old women who have 37 cats — all named Fluffy — and swear there hasn't been a decent president since Ike.
