Here is some small town gossip in the biggest little town in America. “ FYI, I'm not a criminal ---but I am an 8th generation Texan artist who happens to believe in liberty. Since the comment book at the sculpture maintained thatI'm a thief and pedophile [the CEO of Skico was spotted writing in it after dark, know that I am an Eagle Scout, a PhD, & skiing freestyle aeria certified. Currently, we are in a lawsuit. Instead of all this court stuff where justice is determined by big $ [and I'm fighting billionaires], I proposed this to the CEO of Skico:
"Just returned from art class @SAIC. [School of the Art Institute of Chicago]. Had birthday breakfast this morning with girl pals dressed as Barbie. Check out aspen ideas festival...."-tweet, Skico/General Dynamics/JP Morgan Chase owner Paula Crown. Her Aspen Skiing CEO:
"Watch out, I'm blogging now. How's your Aspen? @ heidizj: [Heidi is CEO of the Aspen art Museum.] Good move, Heidi."-AspenSnowCEO
Dear Little Mikey,
Despite our differences, we both love teaching skiing & our community. These days our politicians are just blowhards; whereas, our Revolutionary forefathers deeply respected a good fight: Vice President Burr fatally wounded former Secretary of Treasury Hamilton in a High Noon dueling shootout. Taking inspiration from the current Roger Marolt/Aspen Times and Lo Semple/Aspen Daily News ski-OFF: Why not a Mulcahy/Kaplan Wild West flip-OFF at the base of Aspen? Cheerleaders?---would Heidi & Paula bring pom-poms and go all Dallas Cowboys for you?
It’ll be hilarious: CEO vs. peon.
BIG $$$ vs. white trash.
Chicago North Shore vs. Fort Worth, Texas.
Audi driving Master of the Skico Universe vs. pick-up driving banned Skico whistleblower.
Aspen Institute green “limousine liberal” vs. “Don’t tread on me” NRA/Tea Party occupier.
Castle Creek free market DU MBA vs. Burlingame public housing unionizer Sorbonne-attending PhD.
Skier vs. snowboarder. Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker.
Elite 1% vs. 99%.
Or a moguls contest on AH’s Scarlett’s instead of all this legal stuff? Man to man. It would be so in line with Aspen's history. But if I win, Skico has to pay more than $9.25/hr. u call a “living wage” here & I get my job back. Full disclosure: I was freestyle aerial certified. But I'll even flip on a snowboard and u can use those skis Roger Marolt pokes fun of u about.
And that's the paradox of the public space, everyone may kind of know something unpleasant, but once someone says it, it changes everything.
Therefore, I cannot resist: Paula Crown, PhD candidate at the Art Institute of Chicago, is on President Obama's arts council; Michelle vacations @ Paula’s palace; General Dynamics, a merchant of death, and Wall Street's JP Morgan Chase are prosperous.
What was the name of that Dan Sheridan song Skico has banned? “Big $”?
28th amendment to get the big $$$ out of politics already?
So back to skiing, AspenSnowCEO, are you in?
Thou shall not speak ill of the Crown Royals: I sent the peon vs CEO challenge as a letter to editor of the Aspen Times; but they refused to print it. We're a small town and they print EVERYTHING. Well, unless it's anti-Skico. When I asked to run it as an advertisement, the paper’s editor/co-manager [huh?] refused. Can u say company town? Or lack of separation between editorial and publishing? Note: Skico has a large ad budget with the Aspen Times. [LOL: they refuse to advertise in the Aspen Daily News].
