Elitist attitude has no place in Aspen

To WM Burger,

Your letter in the Aspen Daily News, Aug. 8 and in the Aspen Times, Aug. 9, states the “workers” and our police should “Relax, it’s Aspen.” A key word in your letter is “patronizing.” (“Everything is positive, Aspen”)

Are you not aware that we all use the S curves, and that the emergency vehicle on Maroon Creek Road with lights flashing was on the way to a tragic accident? Was your “cruise” more important?

Your elitist and condescending attitude stands in the way of you ever being a “local” or a true member of this community.
