Out with the riffraff

Dear Editor:

I read that Dan Sheridan was fired from his job at Sneaky’s Tavern for performing his hit song “Big Money.”

I can only hope that the lowly patrons who had the audacity to request that song are tracked down and relieved of their skiing privileges immediately. That’s not the type of clientele the Aspen Skiing Co. is trying to attract to the new Base Village – it’s more fitting of the type of people the mayor of Aspen is trying to lure here.

Lo Semple
