Just say no to Condi

Dear Editor:

On the front page of the Thursday, May 15, issue of your paper you announced that Condoleezza Rice, the U.S. Secretary of State, and a former student at the Aspen Music Festival and School, has been invited to perform at the Benedict Music Tent at 3 p.m. Aug. 2 (“Condoleezza Rice to perform at Music Festival”). The event is to be co-presented by the Aspen Music Festival and the Aspen Institute.

No member of the Bush-Cheney war-crime family should be welcome here. Because our lawmakers have refused to hold these criminals accountable for their crimes, we the people should simply refuse to welcome them among us. It is our moral, ethical and patriotic duty.

Ciao, Condi.

James Breasted
