So, I've sent an email to the Oregonian requesting that they write a story regarding the issues people have had with Sallie Mae - I sent links along with it to Student Loan Justice, Sallie Mae Beef, and several other sites on the web including my own.
I haven't heard back from them yet, but it's only been 24 hours. I'll keep watch and if I don't hear anything in a week, I'll send another copy of it. I'm also going to send out a paper version to them, as well as to every local news agency here in town. Bwa ha ha ha ha! I'm GOING to be heard, and I'm determined that everyone else should be heard, too.
