Co-owner, Rocky Mountain RoastersSummit CoveHas the economic downturn affected you? I have not yet noticed anything here. If it affects the rest of the country, then it will eventually affect us, because well get less people up to ski.Do you support the government bailout of Wall Street? No. Im for less government control over anything. They (the banks) screwed it all up, and now well be paying for it out of our pockets.

HomemakerMinneapolis, Minn. (owns a home in Frisco)I have four grown children, and its affected their lives, which has affected mine.

Retired college professorPuerto VallartaNot so much. Im retired, and what portfolio I have is already put into very diverse areas. I planned on stuff like this happening a long, long time ago. My concern is not for myself, but for those younger than I am and still in the workforce.I have some ambiguity about this whole thing … So I have to go against what I believe in and let someone I dont know make decisions that are very personal to me.

Counter clerk at Marys Mountain CookiesBreckenridgeFor the last few years, Ive wanted to travel in Europe. At this point, its pointless, considering our money is half of what the Euro is.To tell you the truth, I really dont know much about that.
