Letter: The Eagle County politburo
Gypsum, CO Colorado
I have some ideas for the Eagle County Housing Authority being pushed on us by the commissioners. First, we could call the person who runs this the “Czar of Housing.” This person could then allocate housing in the valley by the method of “from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.”
The Czar could confiscate the property of second home owners as obviously they don’t really have a “need” as they already have a home somewhere else. While we’re at it, let’s have the Czar form collective farms and ranches to feed those in need. Those who resist could be sent to the gulag (new justice center) for “re-education.” The Commissioners and Czar could all move to Bachelor Gulch into some of the homes vacated by second home owners who were “cooperative” in understanding the needs of the county. Children would be taken at age 2 and put into the county-paid preschool system to be sure that they were properly educated in the ways of collectivism.
The Vail Daily would be renamed the Vail Pravda.
All hail the Eagle County Politburo.
Thanks for thinking of us!
