Those who have a good time now will come back to Breck when careers start

It was a relief to see a letter to the editor concerning actual news. I’ve been amused by the controversy surrounding the scandalous Breckenridge Ski Resort ads, but I’d rather read people’s thoughts on events that have more widespread effects than offending real estate agents.

No, the target demographic of the pulled ad campaign doesn’t have the income of someone who skis at Vail or Beaver Creek. But they still tip.

Since when is Breckenridge so family-oriented?

A few years ago, a similar ad counted the bar stools in Breckenridge and lamented the loss of the town brothel. How many towns of this size have two head shops?

The so-called club scene isn’t much to talk about, but there are plenty of options if you simply want to stagger.

The rest of the country sees Breckenridge as the party spot that Copper wants to be.

Embrace that, or these revelers may just go to Whistler, British Columbia, instead. Their good memories of a place will bring them back through college, and after they start their high-paying jobs. I’d prefer they return here.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I may be Adam Aron’s bitch, but he did, indirectly, buy the tobacco water pipe being handed to me. It’s rude to refuse a good thing being handed to you. Real news in the newspaper, please.
