Aspen Times ‘bought it’

Dear Editor:Congratulations to Joel Stonington and The Aspen Times for your front-page Sunday (May 7) feature, “The story of the house on the hill.” Clearly your impressionable reporter missed the fact that the “house everyone is talking about” has been on the market for more than a year and can be more accurately described as the house no one is buying – no one except The Aspen Times. One reason: The home is as contrived as the imaginary story attempting to sell it. It will eventually sell, that’s not the point. My question is, where do the rest of us sign up for the free, above-the-fold, front-page expose touting our latest listing, product, service or business? I know it’s offseason, but clearly there are more important stories of interest. By the way, breaking news – check out my brand-new two-bedroom, two-bath condo in Willits for $395,000. If you want, I’ll even get all dressed up and sit in it for you. Seriously, stick with the news – it’s what you do best. Save your ad space for paying clients.Scott Bayensbroker/realtorBasalt
