10th Mountain Division Information[edit]

An editor stated in the Description and history portion of this article:

Need some verbiage about 10th Mountain Division

I'm removing it from the article and placing it here, a more appropriate location. --Wolf530 01:45, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

Sardy Field[edit]

Sardy Field is Colorado's third largest airport.-- Surely this is a typo, right? Maybe it's Aspen's third largest employer??Mattbucher 18:30, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Wealth[edit]

How can you guys make a page on Aspen Colorado without serious reference of what makes it such a unique place: how incredibly rich the population (especially touring population) is? It should really be mentioned that Aspen has become synonoymous with excessive wealth and egoism in this country, as shown in such films as Dumb and Dumber, and by the number of people like Kenneth Lay and Abramoff (I think) who've had houses there. Also, The Aspen Institute, Aspen Music Festival, and Aspen Film Festival should definitely be mentioned. Also, it could be mentioned that the world's most expensive house is there, I think (I bet the top five), some behemoth for which the land itself cost $125 million I think. At any rate, in an attempt at objectivity, I suppose, the wealth issue here seems to have been completely ignored.

External links[edit]

I just want to discuss about few links that I want to add to this page and think that they can be helpful. Please let me know your thoughts. I really donot want to be aggressive and insert it and get it removed by somebody.Rather I would like to discuss and insert them so that they are added as enhancements to the page. Here are the links:-

Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks. --PhoneBookHistorianGeek (talk) 22:16, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

The first two I'll leave up to the opinion of others, but go-colorado.com definitely counts as spam. Dori (TalkContribs) 01:54, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
I say the main paper is notable; not the rest. It would be best if discussed in the body of the article, instead of simply put in an external links section.--Psrq (talk) 01:44, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Real-estate[edit]

I think this section needs to be updated because due to the recent recession,the real-estate market has fallen dramatically. The Juan And Only Mac (talk) 04:25, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Map point in info box[edit]

If I'm to believe the map in the infobox, Aspen somewhere near Durango. Now we all know that's not true. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JimmySand9 (talkcontribs) 23:06, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
