Whose problem is this?

Dear Editor:Hey, Chris Tessem, every time I go to Basalt, I have to go through this roundabout and all these S curves (Letters to the Editor, Oct. 23). It slows people down. Don’t you think you should be agitating for a four-lane to the middle of Basalt so people could rip into the heart of your town at 50 miles an hour?Better yet, why don’t you work on a superhighway to Jeffrey Evans’ house? Or better still, why don’t the pair of you mind your own business? Try to make things ugly and polluted where you live.You may not be able to understand this, but a lot of residents of this end of the valley don’t feel obligated to damage our community for your selfish personal convenience.Richard GordonAspen
