Young People In Politics?

Jerri and I had a lovely dinner in Aspen at Matsu. The town is not as crowded as it was last year. The economy is definitely showing its colors this year. The benefactors of this situation are locals who can easily find a place to park in Aspen.

Labor Day weekend is usually fun and gleeful time in the valley bringing in thousands of tourists and big tips to locals. Speaking of locals, here is a link that my friend, Commissioner Owsley, sent to me: NYTimes link about young poeple in politics… 

Fewer Young Voters See Themselves as Democrats, By Kirk Johnson:

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The college vote is up for grabs this year — to an extent that would have seemed unlikely two years ago, when a generation of young people seemed to swoon over Barack Obama.

Though many students are liberals on social issues, the economic reality of a weak job market has taken a toll on their loyalties: far fewer 18- to 29-year-olds now identify themselves as Democrats compared with 2008.

Have a good weekend regardless… I intend to, as a very good friend, who happens to be a musician, is finishing his tour tonight  and on his way to visit me at Owl Farm. More TK!
