Vail Daily letter: Small price to pay

Regarding Kathy Calton’s letter to the editor of March 11:

Ms. Calton wonders why, if the town of Eagle sales tax is increased, she shouldn’t travel to Edwards to eat out. If she pays $50 for her meal, the extra cost for her meal in Eagle as a result of the increased sale tax will be 25 cents. No matter what car she drives, she’ll pay more in gas to get to and from Edwards.

And her statement that most economists are predicting a recession reminds me of the often-told joke: Why did God create economists? To make weathermen feel not so stupid.
