Tone of Granby tattoo debate could be elevated
February 29, 2008
To the Editor:
As a complete outsider ” a person who has spent time in Grand Lake and likes to keep up with the goings-on in Grand County ” one thing is perfectly clear after reading Patrick Brower’s letter to the editor and Mayor Ted Wang’s column in the Feb. 21 issue of the Middle Park Times. These two men do not like each other.
Now, I have no opinion as to whether or not Granby should have tattoo parlors and/or pawn shops in their central business district, but it seems to me that reasonable people should be able to have an objective, rational, intelligent discussion of the matter without resorting to the sort of sarcasm, name calling and negative innuendo that were evident in both the letter to the editor and in the mayor’s column.
Let’s grow up guys.
