Planning and zoning collide

Dear Editor:

Humanistic Studies are history in Aspen. It’s been replaced by equal validity. Now we accept the proposition that good and bad things are equally valid.

For example, Aspen’s planning conflicts with its zoning. The purpose of planning is to develop traffic congestion at the entrance to Aspen. Zoning’s purpose is to prevent development from creating traffic congestion. These two different policies are not inconsistent nor is there any worry about using bad means to achieve good ends because all things are equal.

Equal validity. I wouldn’t change a thing. Life is good when we are less judgmental.

Unless we are talking about George Bush.

Be brave, comrades.
