Look who’s talking now

Dear Editor:It is good to know that remnants of Aspen’s character still exist: two native sons rolling up their sleeves in a row, standing firm on what they believe. Does anybody remember or does anyone care about the families Peirce and Marolt, ski pioneers when this town was little more than a dream and high rollers were known as carpetbaggers? From the tone, I don’t think so. The world has changed, as has Aspen, and the context of this little row, whether we like it or not, is the urbanization of a once funky mountain mining town. Did someone just say what was once funky is now crappy? Maybe they are right. If we have the money and the will, why not buy history and education? Jamie KnowltonSnowmass Village
