Why pave paradise?

Dear Editor:Just had some houseguests from Telluride; they were explaining how hard Telluride has been working in saving the open meadows at the entrance of their town – quite the united front in maintaining their small town appeal.They were amused that while they are trying to preserve their open space, some in Aspen are working hard to put a highway through ours. I wasn’t really amused, more embarrassed. In a hundred years, whose town will be happier with the results?Yasmine de PagterAspen
