Felolily has an unusual, possibly unique, reason for wishing for peace on earth and an absence of serious problems in her own country, state, and city as well. What is it?

Whoops, didn't read the first version first. My bad.

Anyway...

Is the reason related to anyone she knows? Her job? Political views? Religion? Education? Culture? Upbringing?

Is Felolily a pacifist? Has she ever served in the armed forces? Does she know someone who has? Is she American? HAF?

I'm assuming this is a duplicate?Yes. Please answer questions on this version only. When I saw I had made a typo in the version above, I clicked on 'Cancel Post' & re-posted the puzzle. But apparently I didn't get to 'Cancel Post" fast enough! Sorry.He was never formed that all times might stand, but sometime he was put to the worse by mal-fortune.

SF has a hobby that relates to newspapers? to reading newspapers? a particular newspaper only? and she gets a newspaper whose editor we have called Al?
and the editorials are the relevant part of the paper?

and she wishes for there to be peace etc so that there will be room for other things in the newspaper? for the editorial section to get larger? for more editorials?

so is it right to say that her unique reason relates to reading newspaper editorials?

does she read them in an unusual way? get some unusual sort of satisfaction from them? get some unusual information from them?

is she interested in editorials written by a particular person? someone she knows?

is she interested in readers responses to editorials? does she send in responses herself? and wants more to respond to?

are you Felolily?

is writing in to newspapers relevant?
is she being competitive in any way? going for a record? wanting to get attention?

does F want an editorial to be about a particular subject? does she want there to be peace etc so that there will be room for an editorial on a particular issue? one that she writes? one that she believes in?

if there is peace etc does that mean it will be more likely for the paper to print something she writes?

does she want to get her writing published in this paper? a letter published?

is this summed up as - you'd like the paper to print a piece you write so you'd like for there to be fewer other things they want to write about to make room for your views more often?

is this the providence journal?

is the placing of the editorial within the paper relevant?
is the content of the editorials relevant?

do you want them to publish a poem?

I'm trying to reconcile these two answers you've given-
Does she want the editorial section to no get smaller? yesish
and
Does she want another section to get smaller? noThe entire paper? no

It would seem from the 'no' that you have inserted in the first question and the yesish at the end, that you want something to get smaller (but not the editorial) - but that seems to be contradicted by the answers to the next questions. am I missing something?

Is it correct to say that you wish for there to be fewer things to write about? so making a section smaller? or so making them have to find something to pad out a section?
if the latter - will the stuff they use to replace the news be written by you? be about you?

is the placing of the editorial within the paper relevant? yes
is the content of the editorials relevant? no

do you want them to publish a poem? yes

I'm trying to reconcile these two answers you've given-
Does she want the editorial section to no get smaller? yesish
and
Does she want another section to get smaller? noThe entire paper? no

It would seem from the 'no' that you have inserted in the first question That no is a BLOOOOPERALERTTTTTTTTTT!! I DO want the editorial section to get smallerand the yesish at the end, that you want something to get smaller (but not the editorial) - but that seems to be contradicted by the answers to the next questions. am I missing something? No. I want the editorial section to get smaller to make room for . . .

Is it correct to say that you wish for there to be fewer things to write about? yes so making a section smaller? yesor so making them have to find something to pad out a section? yes
if the latter - will the stuff they use to replace the news be written by you? yes be about you? no

******* SPOILER **********
The same newspaper that publishes my monthly column also publishes my poems on the editorial page on an irregular basis (but averaging about one per month). If are pressing events to write editorials about, the poems have to wait. Please don't wait to start on my new puzzle!
