The Given money pit

Dear Editor:

Am enjoying all of the “support” the Given is being given … and it is wonderful. However, if the University of Colorado runs this at a $200,000 yearly deficit, who, what and where in Aspen is going to pick that tab up? Suggestions from someone? Not one!

I am for saving buildings, art, etc. … but who is going to pay? At some point someone needs a reality check on this issue, or fund a bank account to maintain the building (and it is in need of repairs) … and then there is the $200,000 per the next 100 years!
