• “most memorable incident was getting cut off by a green Range Rover in downtown Aspen. I turned to give the driver the finger, and stoooed myself just in time to see it was my tennis hero, local Chris Evert. She gave me the little wave and sorry. I’m like, no problem s’cool.” — @LiglyCnsrvatari

• #Hickenlooper was a great governor, & would be a great senator Please retweet if you’d support @Hickenlooper running for @SenCoryGardner’s seat #Colorado #Aspen” — @roving81611

• “Hey #Areday ‘activists’ coming to #Aspen on their private planes today. Take note what a real environmentalist looks like.” — @marcimichelle

• “I’d recommend everyone have a look at the videos posted at YouTube by the Aspen Institute. They give us a look into the tightly intermingled (and often intermarried) relationships between the Pentagon, the prestige media, think tanks and defence contractors.” — @SeanLime

• “I drove to Aspen last weekend. There was a 3 car pile up outside of leadville. Stuck for 2 hours, we turned the cars off started convos with people 4 cars back. Fortunately it was day time.” — @HooksRand
