It’s an airplane, not a bus

Dear Editor: If Rocky Mountain Airways, Aspen Airways, Continental Airlines, United Airlines and a cast of other airlines can’t make money flying between Aspen and Denver, how is Dwight Shellman’s idea of a county-owned airline going to make money?Running an airline is not like running a bus line. Please don’t waste taxpayer dollars on this harebrained idea. If you want to improve air service into Aspen, you’ll need to bury the highway in a tunnel and make the runway longer. That way, more airlines will be able to fly in with large aircraft.Please make your feasibility study check out to Jon Silver, Boulder, Colo.Jon SilverBoulder
