Youth is overrated

Dear Editor:

Being a big fan of the Marolt boys over the years, I hope Roger can take a satirical shot at refuting and/or rebuffing his latest missive/diatribe on mean age of the gentle population of Aspen (“The future is creeping up on us … with a walker,” opinion, July 8, 2011, The Aspen Times).

Roger, my boy, remove your head long enough to listen to how things are rather than your frantic call for the same poop Madison Avenue has been spewing since the boomers were born, i.e. that youth rules … and rocks. How misguided you are, son. You’ve drunken the Kool-Aid, too!
