A new law for cellphonephiles

Dear Editor:Instead of debating the injudicious plan for a public subsidy of a privately-owned bookstore, a clear breach of fiduciary duty, our political representatives should seriously consider this law as more relevant and pertinent to the huddled masses: Drivers within the city limits of Aspen risk a minimum $20 fine for driving while talking into a phone – unless they are using a headset, speaker phone, ear bud or some other technology that frees both hands while they talk. Drivers in emergency situations would be exempt.Tracy WynnAspen
