Letter: New look disappoints

New look disappoints

Dear Editor:

Reading The Aspen Times website used to be a straightforward experience. You clicked on local news and, lo, there was local news. Ditto opinion, letters to the editor, arts and obituaries.

Now it’s a chore. The reader is presented with a row of imbecile dots which are evidently meant for clicking. Click them, though, and you are likely to get a personal column, an obituary, an editorial, news of Vail — practically anything but news of Aspen and its satellites. Try to narrow it down by going to regional and you’ll get caught up on things in, well, Vail.

Crime is certainly an interesting news category but you get tired of the same domestic-dustup story after four or five weeks. Is the idea here to drive readers to the Aspen Daily News, whose website is primitive, limited, and often ill-written but still easy to use?

David Chamberlain
