Is Aspen next?

While at my favorite Snowmass Village cafe, I read something ominous on the front page of The New York Times (Monday, Oct. 28): “Previously, Al Qaeda targeted embassies and official buildings ? or symbolic ones like the World Trade Center ? but now these are so well protected that Al Qaeda is turning to so-called soft targets, like resorts.”

What steps have public officials in Aspen-Snowmass taken in light of this terrible trend?
