What a modern racket

Dear Editor:Jerome B. Wheeler came to visit his old home in the west end this past Thursday. He was pleased with condition of the grounds and enjoyed some reminiscing on the patio.He expressed dismay, however, over the street noise level which assaulted his 60-some odd guests making it virtually impossible to hear his stories. We tried to explain about renegades speeding and down-shifting through our side streets to avoid the jam on Main Street but he carried a puzzled look. (The current resident would like permission to start lobbing grenades?)Transportation is much more intrusive than in the horse and buggy days.Georgia HansonAspen Historical Society
