Try leading by example

Dear Editor:I suppose it is to be expected that, much as the G8 leaders meet sequestered in economically isolated resorts far from the sight and voices of the hoi polloi below them, the cultural elite of America hold an “Ideas Conference” in the rarefied air of Aspen. But I find it only fair to point out to this cultured class just how poorly, except for yourselves, you have managed your stewardship of the planet and its peoples, and then ask you to justify why anyone should pay any attention to you.Robert PorathBoulder
