Giving Aspen a voice

Dear Editor:

Aspen needs a celebrity’s voice greeter at the airport like Aspen needs smog! It needs a politician’s (John McCain), voice even less (“McCain’s voice no longer to flly at the Aspen airport,” Letters, May 6).

Voice greeters should be Aspen voices ” moms, dads, kids, grannies, grampaws, uncles, aunts, all walks of Aspen lives. They are the ones who entice celebrities and other forms of life to want to fly into my favorite Colorado town! (I guess the mountains have something to do with it, too.)

I suggest one Aspen longtime resident whose husband was the greatest of all Aspen’s voices be a voice greeter. That of course would be Annie Denver, the inspiration for many of John’s songs. Talk about a Rocky Mountain High, or filling up our senses.
