Letter: Something is rotten

A few years ago while I had one of my Denver adventures, I recall neighbors in the Mile High City complaining about the upsetting, dreadful odor coming from the Mary Jane growing facility in their neck of the woods.

They were up in arms about how the stench disturbed their lives.

Oh, yeah — some folks have instant amnesia, don’t they? I forgot they live in paradise and euphoria and do not pay attention to the news because they selfishly don’t care about other American people struggling around them. This is the dope on them, isn’t that right?

Also, some elected and non-elected officials are just too lazy to do their due diligence in government work or are just plain too lazy to do a child’s homework assignment. Ain’t it the truth on both accounts?

Something is still rotten in the New Denmark called Basalt in Pitkin County. What are you going to do about it, Basaltines and Pitkin County Board of Commissioners?
