Times columnist out in left field

Dear Editor:

The whole of Mr. Colson’s manifesto (“Too much wealth in the hands of too few,” May 8, 2011, Aspen Times Weekly) was summed up when he states, “Unfortunately, too many of us are stuck in a dream world where we believe that if we leave the rich in power …”

How would he propose we remove them? A lot of them are not in elected positions and Stalin is gone. Marx would be proud.

Is it too much to ask The Aspen Times for a conservative columnist for some balance? Charles Krauthammer, for instance?
