What’s wrong with this picture?

Dear Editor:

State of Colorado is strapped for cash. Governor wants to cut $320 million from education. School closings and teacher furloughs loom. There’s even talk now of closing a prison and reducing “essential government services.” But fear not. All is not lost.

The state, ostensibly “in the interest of public safety,” has cobbled enough money together to send lawyers to Aspen during high season to prosecute that elderly guy in town who gives people free rides in his van.

The trial has been scheduled for Aspen District Court on Feb. 22. But don’t expect a free “We Are Phil Sullivan” bumper sticker for attending.
