Vox Populi

What are you doing to take your mind off the recession?

Janice Harris, West Palm Beach, Fla.

Well, I started getting my Social Security checks, so that makes it a little bit easier. We had a bunch of friends that were going to come here, but they couldn’t afford it.

Marty Harris, West Palm Beach, Fla.

It’s just too much. The TV, the papers, the magazines, I can’t take my mind off it. But I left my newspapers in my suitcase. That definitely takes away from it.

Riley Tippet, Aspen

Working. Just put it in the back of your mind and hope that people keep coming to Aspen.

Kristin Tippet, Aspen

I just keep doing what I do. I keep it in the back of my mind and I don’t watch the news too much.

Sam Morris, Bailey, Colo.

You’re not going to believe this, but my wife and I go to the pistol range and practice shooting. We go about once a week.

Mark Gamble, Grand Junction, Colo.

I just came to Aspen. It’s working great. I’m having a good time here.
