"No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions." --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804.

The new(er) Aspen

The comparison of Ketchum/Sun Valley to their peer ski resort towns – Jackson, Aspen, Park City, Telluride, and others – is no new thing. But the specific head-to0head comparison between K/SV and the “granddaddy” of these places – Aspen, Colorado – gets a good going over in the Idaho Mountain Express.

Basic conclusion: The parallels aren’t perfect, but yeah, they have a whole lot in common.
