Unruly hippies not for the front page

Dear Editor:

I was disappointed to see what you declared front-page-worthy news. Peace officers having to deal with unruly hippies is not front-page news. Please try to report on something actually interesting to the residents of Aspen.

You and I and everyone reading this knows that these people are antagonizing the police, trying to get stories just like this printed. Show some responsibility.

John Jacobs
