Bring it on!

Dear Editor (Dude):Far out story you got there on the skateboard campers. It does my heart good to see young Americans rejecting a life of burger-flipping corporate slavery and heeding the call of the, like, wild.It’s being read by RVers all over America who get a digest of camping stories such as yours.This story could, however, get you run outta Aspen. Last thing they want over there is publicity that encourages visits by low-rent people who sleep on the ground and – the horror! – even make fun of Coors, the bottled squirrel urine that Colorado people take such perverse pride in. The word is that cops in Aspen arrest people for DWLI – driving while low-income.Actually it would do your snarky little burg some good to have a few hundred thousand unwashed slackers invading the place to play loud music and f— in the dirt, yah? Bring it on!Aloha.Ernest MurphyHonolulu, Hawaii
