Can’t have it both ways

Dear Editor:

Apparently it is true that no good deed goes unpunished. Johnny Boyd’s letter of Jan. 14 states that he was able to get his then-girlfriend into the U.S. legally through the good offices of the Aspen Skiing Co. She was allowed to jump the immigration line and come here as an instructor in the children’s ski program.

This ingrate then spends the rest of his letter criticizing Skico for paying less than he thinks is reasonable for her efforts. He should consider that it costs money for immigration attorneys, HR, etc., and that he can’t have it both ways. He comes across as someone who wants to eat at both ends of the chow line.
