Save it for an ad

Dear Editor:The cover story of last Sunday’s Times featured an article about a spec house for sale in the Aspen Highlands area. Frank Goldsmith and his wife were shown on the cover spread, posed comfortably in the front of their fireplace, presumably awaiting a buyer to step forth with the $12.4 million which they have indicated as their selling price.This sort of stuff belongs back in the real estate ads and not on the front page of our oldest daily newspaper, I do believe. I hope this is not the start of a trend, but life is full of surprises.Shifting gears, I thought the May 1 peon power nationwide demonstrations were somewhat amusing. This movement, which features an effort by expatriates from a foreign land trying to jam their foot in our door, may have gone too far. Unless they can find an intelligent and clear-thinking leader, they may have shot themselves in the foot already. I await comments. And from Roger (the Dodger) Marolt, in particular. He has a weak pen and will probably remain silent.Pete LuhnAspen
