False praise

Dear Editor:I wished to comment on a letter by Gaston Alciatore (in the Aspen Daily News of Jan. 19) in which he attacks Torre for being critical of certain features of the proposed Wienerstube development, and therefore unwilling at this time to vote for approval. I believe Gaston flew off the handle when he implied that this was just a tactical ploy to enhance Torre’s campaign for mayor.This letter had lavish praise for the project and its developer, Steve Marcus. He would have us believe that Marcus is a white knight rather than the greedhead many of us consider him to be. Do you receive your information and advice from the tooth fairy, Gaston? I’m thinking that you could possibly be interested in buying this bridge from me that I own back in Brooklyn.To wind things up, I consider this accusation by Mr. Alciatore to be somewhere between farfetched and half-baked.Pete LuhnAspen
