Confession of a barbarian

Already quite comfortable wearing the label “Deplorable” as a badge of honor, I woke up on Monday to find that Aspen Times columnist Paul Andersen deems me to be a “barbarian” (“Fighting back against the barbarians,” commentary, Jan. 28).

Boy howdy. Following Elizabeth Warren’s example (“I’m going to go get me a beer”), I’m going to get me a yellow vest and a red MAGA hat, and then I’m going to strew beer cans all over the Thompson Divide, before sacking Carbondale on my way home.
