Letter: A crashing ant

This is my good-natured response to Ken Fry’s May 18 letter to the editor of The Aspen Times (“Age of Marijuana”) objecting to my May 16 letter (“Marijuana puts youth at risk”), where he portrays me as an oldster blocking marijuana’s progress. Ken reminds me of the proud ant climbing to the peak of a tall blade of grass, only to have it bend, sending the little critter crashing back to earth. I feel fortunate I’m not yet Fryed and still standing for youth.
