Things to consider
Dear Editor:Here are some important things I and others thought about as we read various local newspaper articles.Erin, the catering manager at the Hotel Colorado, should have a profile story done on her workload and activities, which are of interest to newspaper readers and the lodging industry. She works on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve. When does she get a national holiday off from her job?The Aspen Skiing Co.’s recent hype left questions to be answered. What do those suspected percentages about foreigners coming here from their transpacific and transatlantic travels represent in hard numbers and U.S. dollars? What are the aliens’ social status and business status in their foreign homelands? Why didn’t these sought-after aliens fly here in their private and corporate jets like rich American tycoons do? What research did Mr. “Crystal Ball” Perry do to collect data and evidence and massage them to come up with his conclusions about lower and dragging skiing numbers and percentages on the four humps he hustles?Will those who plan the Aspen Farmers Market visit distant farmers markets in Hollywood, Santa Monica, Westwood, Beverly Hills, Pasadena and other desirable marketing places to learn from and evolve their local fiefdom?Will local businesses accept the business logic that it takes more than snow to earn profits and stay in the black?Emzy Veazy III, Esq.
