Take your best shot

To deal with a preemptive strike by Mr. Warren Klug, Aspen Square Condominium Hotel, about my stand against expanding the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport, let me express something to bring him to the conference table with some of his innkeeping peers.

I am sure I can help you improve your operations, marketing and tourism attractiveness without caving into your anti-Burbank/Glendale/Los Angeles position of “the public be damned.”

Further, Mr. Klug, you and I are Episcopals in fellowship. However, years ago I took our shared Episcopalism/Anglicanism to the highest level: As a Republican I support Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who is the titular leader of our Anglican Communion. Buckingham Palace knows and so do Fordham University alumni.

When you are in need of prosperity, and corporation sharks want to chew you up and you need allies, Providence may provide you with supporters of monarchies to help keep you alive and moving in prominent circles from time to time. Thank God it happened to me!

So, Mr. Klug, shoot your best shot, because I am the guy in Aspen who can brag David Rockefeller visited him to see what he was doing.
