I am Elizabeth, hear me roar

Dear Editor:

Once again, I can always count on you to help promote my latest message. (You have become part of my press strategy, and predictably, you came through! THANKS!) Your latest contribution reeks of the fear that you and your small band of “bring back the quiet years” folks are experiencing yet again. Think about it, if you weren’t scared to death of me and what I can accomplish, you would simply ignore me — and by doing so, make me irrelevant.

Instead, the $20 bills are rolling in and the pennies are rolling out. And yes, it’s fun as hell. People in Aspen are indeed very SICK OF MICK. Who knows what kind of race will shape up here? That’s not the point. He needs to raise money, run a campaign and address the issues. It was looking like he thought he wouldn’t have to. Now he most certainly does! Mission accomplished.

If you think your column does anything more than drive traffic to my site and promote my efforts, you need stronger oxygen.

Another thing that you do is cast a poor reflection on The Aspen Times at a time when the paper is clearly suffering. There’s no coincidence why I gave the story (yes, front page) to the Aspen Daily News.

Have a wonderful day, Su! I’m going skiing and then getting a massage. You?

Elizabeth Milias
