Tweet All About It: Politics and Aspen
Each week, we pick out our favorite and not-so-favorite tweets (at least those that are printable) about Aspen and display them on Sunday’s page A2.
• “The other #aspen — last night I had a marvelous waitress, immigrant from Thailand. Must have worked until midnight. To my surprise she greeted me at a different restaurant for breakfast at 7:00 am this morning. #ImmigrantsMakeAmericaGreat” — @cmschroed
• “John Kerry — perhaps illegal mother shdn’t have placed her screaming child in such a position. #Dems always assign blame incorrectly! #Aspen” — @priz55
• “Unlike the #RedHen, my cigar club welcomes members of all political persuasions: Deplorables, libertarians, Lib-Progs; we’re all gentlemen (and 2 ladies) who value above all good manners, civility and camaraderie. Next week we’re in #Aspen for our annual Maduro Summerfest!” — @HighAndLowLife
• “LOL #DavidMilliband contemplating a day discussing #Refugees and the world’s #poor from a luxury hotel in #Aspen, Colorado. #corruptglobalists #Laboursocialists” — @Alleninvest
• “In the Aspen airport: fresh J’s, Louis V dog bag? Gucci backpack, and the heir to the Scripps Networks fortunes headed to Florida for ‘idk how long’ with his French bulldog.” — @UndeNIYAble
• “Y’all I just got the best email I’ve ever received to my work inbox. It’s about Steven Seagal, the CIA, Aspen, a cover-up, and John Denver.” — @ParrishWalton

Mario Ruiz came to Aspen Highlands from Bariloche through the ski patrol exchange as part of the Sister Cities program last winter. He quickly ingrained himself with the Highlands patrol. Ruiz was killed July 27 in an avalanche while working at his home ski area. The Highlands patrol is raising funds for his family.
