Give Obama a chance

Dear Editor:

In The Aspen Times on Nov. 6 was a letter by Scarlett Adams so full of prejudice and hatred for Obama and other black people it is hard to believe! Her beloved Republican party got it’s ass kicked due to the past eight years of Bush’s policies, mistakes and the state of our nation. Millions of Americans of all colors voted for Obama and Biden because there is a great possibility that things can get a lot better

than they are now!

From her diatribe I can only assume she was lucky enough to be born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Unfortunately, Scarlett, an awful lot of people are born into poverty and very difficult circumstances which you don’t seem to understand or care.

People are willing to give Obama a chance to form a new administration and get the country back on track to a healthy economy for all Americans, the haves and the have nots! Scarlett, I hope you never wind up in a life-threatening situation in an ER or hospital facility where you might be treated by a black doctor or nurse and God forbid get a blood transfusion which might not be pure white blood! What will you do then?

Chris Tessem

Aspen electeds low on high density in area neighborhoods

The city of Aspen’s land use code says that only single-family homes can be built on lots smaller than 6,000 square feet in certain neighborhoods. That might change if Aspen City Council allows a proposed change that allows multi-family buildings to be developed.
