Confession for newspaper thefts

Dear Editor:

My name is Mitchell Reed, and I’m the one who took the newspapers on Friday, Nov. 5, 2010.

I would like to start off by saying that I am sorry. I know that there is a lot of hard work that goes into creating a newspaper, from the writers to the editors, and I don’t want to undermine the efforts of the people who are involved. I also apologize to the readers of the Aspen Daily News and The Aspen Times. I know that people read the paper religiously and were very upset, but it was not my intent to be a prankster or to take away from one’s hard work.

Some would understand the reasons, some would not. But in the end, I did not realize the overall negative effect that my actions would have. I apologize sincerely to the people who this has affected. It will not happen again.

Mitchell Reed
