Wake up, Times
Dear Editor:Apparently, bears are more important than breast cancer in the eyes of The Aspen Times. I think the Ride for the Cure should have been a front-page story, considering it’s an enormous community event that drew hundreds of participants and raised thousands of dollars.

Poor taste and good photos don’t equal good news.Wake up, Aspen Times!Jannelle KavanaughAspen
