Colossal blunder

Bottling and selling Aspen’s water is a bad idea. Perhaps a “colossal blunder” would be more appropriate.

You would not be selling the name “Aspen.” You would be selling the most precious, natural, FINITE resource we have. In a year when impending droughts have been predicted, when our own snow levels have been meager, it seems particularly foolish.

Once again we see the short-sightedness of a community ready to relinquish limited natural resources upon which we depend for the inherently worthless artifact money.

Don’t do it, Aspen.
