Stop the presses

Dear Editor:

Congratulations, Aspen Times, on your big upcoming move!

If there’s one thing that Aspen needs less, it’s old, historic buildings housing their original businesses. With all of the exposed wires, old newspapers and dog hair floating around in that big purple firetrap, I always figured the plan was to collect a fat insurance check when the place inevitably went up in flames.

But offloading that rat’s nest on those suckers at the Jerome? Brilliant! Hands down the best business decision the Times’ management has made since it hired that pricey East Coast firm to redesign the paper and kill off the iconic masthead. You guys really hit the MotherLode!

I assume this means big raises for all of your hardworking staffers, most of whom look like they moved into the building back in 1907. They certainly deserve it. Maybe Scoop the cat can get a new litter box, too!

Can’t wait to come back and have a drink at the new, swanky nightclub where my old desk used to be!
