Long letters lose readers

Friday’s paper included two letters to the editor, each hundreds of words. Am I the only one who just skips over letters of this length? Has the paper no limit on words? Most letters would be better read if written briefly to the point.

Editor’s note: The Aspen Times’ long-standing policy limits the length of letters to 500 words.
