Marolt is apolitical

As a former Aspen Times editor involved in the hiring of Roger Marolt as a columnist, I can attest that he is no conservative, as Aspen Daily News columnist Lo Semple asserts. Nor is he the “snowflake” liberal that a certain segment of the Times readership alleges of all the paper’s opinion writers.
