Bag ban discriminatory

Dear Editor:

The Aspen City Council’s discriminatory plastic-bag law sags in the city councilmen’s pants. The guys need diapers. Here’s why.

There is a plastic-bag ban effective July 1 in Los Angeles County, where the county Board of Supervisors approved a plastic-bag ban at grocery stores and other shops in unincorporated areas of the county.

This Los Angeles County measure applies to grocery stores, drugstores, liquor stores and convenience stores. Also, customers can buy a paper bag for 10 cents that pays the store for the cost of the bag.

The Aspen City Council should follow in L.A. County’s footsteps on the plastic-bag ban and on the health-rating system for restaurants.

What do you think, boys? Or is discrimination en vogue for the Aspen retail shopping experience?
