Don’t turn Aspen into Pleasantville

Dear Editor:

I’m not exactly sure what sensitivity training for local discourse is, but it makes me itch just thinking about what it might mean. I’m a fan of many on the Civil Discourse Committee, but I’m not a fan of their stated goal.

Great communities are always made up of an eclectic cast of characters. Aspen just might have more than its share, but that’s what separates us from the suburbs. It takes personalities to make a village. Any attempt to control or socialize such is trying to paint our community with a very broad brushstroke of dull and boring.

Think of the movie “Pleasantville.” Are you s—ing me?
