The isolation solution

Dear Editor:Fear of driving has driven Aspen to call for year-round closing of Independence Pass, tear up the railroad tracks into town, constrict public parking, keep four-lane Main Street from four-lane Highway 82 by restricting the Entrance to Aspen to two worm-hole lanes and, now, in-bound choppers are barred from the torn-up airport runway. Long ago, the town wanted to block itself off by building lakes on its east and west borders until it discovered that the wrong types could get in by walking on water.And so it goes.Be brave, comrades.KNCB MooreSanta Barbara.
