"Mark my footsteps, my good page"

Today's the day we sing "Good King Wenceslas" incessantly. It is the Feast of Stephen, the day on which, according to hymn and legend, the noble duke of Bohemia set out in brutal weather to feed a needy person. We love the story -- and the day, one of the best of all the year.

What would Svatý Václav say to us, 1,080 years after his famous walk? Doubtlessly he'd disapprove of this news item, brought to us by the 1% in groovy Aspen.

Aspen has a homeless shelter?
The other thing you cannot do in either Aspen or Vail is park any type of camping vehicle in the city limits. So I guess there won't be any folks staying in church parking lots overnight.

Happy St Stephens day!!

Sad that the wealthy can send off their less desireables via Greyhound. The least that Aspen elite-istas should do is offer one of their spare limos to make the trip a bit easier on the bum.

Several years back when Portland was seemingly over run with street folks with shopping carts I figured out a plan to buy them all one way tickets to a favorable place in America...., somewhere warm. My thought at that time was Florida. Other than the occasional hurricane, it's perfect. My "crazy" sister moved there years ago and she's doing well, so it is possible. Thoughts?

Maybe we can talk trade like the NBA. I'll take 2 homeless types sent to my city for every 1 snobby Aspen type I get to send away.

Well singing it shall be to the behest of the King.


Well, at least the Aspeners didn't stone him to death, eh?


And as Hunter S, Thompson once said about the law enforcement in Aspen (after he was acquitted of charges of illegally discharging a firearm for shooting ay his backyard gongs): "....dogs rolling in their own filth."

Along the lines of Hunter Thompson, now we see why he and the rest of the Aspen Freak Power Party wanted to change the city's name to "Fat City" forty years ago. It shouldn't be any surprise that the most soulless of Dallas's soulless rich people have summer houses in Aspen.

Being a wee bit kinder, the gentle folk of North Dakota took him in....

In case anyone is still wondering if this guy found a warm place to stay in Williston in time for Christmas, the answer is yes. He's spending the weekend at the Williams County Jail pending a court appearance after the holiday. According to people in Aspen (see the article here: http://www.aspendailynews.com/section/home/150901), we are bigoted and they are compassionate because we do not like it when people send homeless criminals here in the winter with no means to survive (the "equipment" they say he has is likely a criminal background that gets him admitted to the warmest of jail cells on demand) and they like to get rid of their homeless criminals by busing them to colder places. Please share your drugs, Aspen, as we North Dakotans are really quite burdened with reality and could use a nice permanent vacation from it like you seem to be on.
