Much ado about bluegrass

Dear Editor:

Wow, a four-page spread on the evils of valley polo in Tuesday’s Times written in the guise of Don Quixote by Aspen’s own Brent Gardner-Smith.

Jeff Hildebrand and his High Mountain Ranch followed all the Pitkin County rules concerning permitting only to be outed as a polo player by county staffers. Four pages of Chicken Little-esque musings on grass seed – incredible. Whether Gardner-Smith and the county recognize it, this was nothing more than a discussion of the merits of Kentucky bluegrass, which would have been better published in the agricultural section of a Midwest newspaper.

Nice try, though.
