The ridiculousness continues in Aspen

The ridiculousness continues

• The Aspen Snowmass logo with an aspen leaf only to be used by Aspen Skiing Co.; the logo is as generic as it gets. Skico is shooting itself in the foot.

• The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory stores closed to make room for Starbucks.

• We didn’t listen to Jim Markalunas years ago about putting in a rail system.

• That Clark’s Oyster Bar qualifies as affordable.

• The developer of Lift 1A is asking for economic relief from the city.

• The 18-year-old driver of the Tesla, driving without a valid driver’s license, getting only two misdemeanors. The accident was so horrific, and he and his parents should have to serve consequences.

• No backs on the 8th Street bus stations.

• Having paid parking on Election Day,

• Wearing black clothes at night crossing the street and expecting drivers to see you.

Read me next year!
