Watered-down politics

Dear Editor:Have you heard the latest in sophomoric, political absurdity? On a flight into Denver for his preparation for Friday night’s debate, Sen. Kerry was offered a beer by the stewardess. He declined, saying that it was Coors beer, and because Pete Coors, a member of the beer family, is running for the Senate as a Republican, he would just have to refuse.The stewardess, being of sound mind, and having a conservative sense of humor, countered with, “In that case, I suppose I had better not offer you a Busch beer, either.” Try Aspen Pure for real water, senator.Peter NicklinAspen
