Letter: Find your game, friend

Find your game, friend

Dear Editor:

Those tiny little random problems that are fixed in your head are bigger problems than most know about (“Trying too hard to capture a moment for life’s highlight reel,” Roger Marolt, commentary, May 10, The Aspen Times).

Thank you for bringing them to light. Maybe the new mayor can sort that housing issue out for you. Maybe the guy who has promised in 2015 to reappear on the ballot will make it his foundation for election, and it will be a landslide? Nobody knows.

It’s the politics of dancing, in my opinion. There must be ways to provide bricks and pipes and wires and stuff to those in need, but I figure it is up to them to resource it.

You shoulda just left the bird alone, and all these feelings would’ve never risen to the light in your eye. You were acting like a touron as well, and the bird gets the last laugh.

There is an icon that should come up on your smartphone’s upper right side of its screen when you choose the camera option. Looks like two arrows. Push it once next time you see that bird. What you will see, is one crazy bird staring back at you.

You have got to find your game, friend. It obviously isn’t a spot on the board in the local Audubon chapter. Stick to your column for now, as it provides much more of a service to the needy than do those tiny random problems that few can approach.

Is it your belief that business owners should lower their prices for housing recipients’ needs? If I come and, say, clean the windows at a housing unit. Should I provide that service at half off or what?

That bird was a spirit sent to give you some work, and this is what you came up with?

Thanks for letting me rent a spot in your head. Mine is filled chockerblock with bricks and pipes, and other items you can buy on the free market.

Have a great day!

Mark Campion

More kindness, less judgment with Mulcahy


I would like to make a comment to Aspen-Pitkin County Housing Authority, city of Aspen, Aspen Skiing Co., etc. with the ongoing Lee Mulcahy drama that has infested our community. In fact, it really applies…
