Local athlete? What about former local athlete? Here is some small town gossip in the biggest little town in America. I’m in a lawsuit with Winnetka's Jim and Paula Crown’s Skico CEO after their multiple overreaches for freedom of speech.
It gets funnier. Not only did the Crowns fire & smear me over freedom of speech for protesting wages, they banned me from National Forest. Google Lee Mulcahy banning. The Skico partners with the Aspen Art Museum —Wait, it gets better: the art museum banned me too! I did public art, not even street art, approved commissioned art, which was in a public place; the Crowns tried to strongarm the City into taking it down. The City requested that I remove it in a letter copying 3 executives @ Skico. FYI, I’m not a criminal —but I am an 8th generation Texan artist who happens to believe in liberty. Since the comment book at the sculpture maintained that I’m a thief and pedophile [the CEO of Skico was spotted writing in it after dark, please know that I am an Eagle Scout, a PhD, & am freestyle ski aeria certified. Currently, we are in a libel suit. Instead of all this court stuff where justice is determined by big $[and I'm fighting billionaires], I proposed this to the CEO of Skico:
Skico refuses to advertise in the Aspen Daily News for letters like this one:
“Just returned from art class @SAIC.[School of the Art Institute of Chicago]. Had birthday breakfast this morning with girl pals dressed as Barbie. Check out aspen ideas festival….”-tweet, Skico/General Dynamics/JP Morgan Chase owner Paula Crown. Her Aspen Skiing CEO:
“Watch out, I’m blogging now. How’s your Aspen?@ heidizj: Good move, Heidi.”-AspenSnowCEO
Despite our differences, we both love teaching skiing & our community. Although I have to ROFL when local earls & countesses line up to pay $10,000.00 to meet barefoot Michelle Obama at the castle General Dynamics built four blocks from my Communist public housing house.
Rome in the 4th Quarter or Versailles?
These days our politicians are just blowhards; whereas, our Revolutionary forefathers deeply respected a good fight: Vice President Burr fatally wounded former Secretary of Treasury Hamilton in a High Noon dueling shootout.
Taking inspiration from the current Roger Marolt/Aspen Times and Lo Semple/Aspen Daily News ski-OFF: Why not a Mulcahy/Kaplan Wild West flip-OFF at the base of Aspen? Cheerleaders?—would Heidi & Paula bring pom-poms and go all Dallas Cowboys for you?
It’ll be hilarious: CEO vs. peon.
BIG $$$ vs. white trash.
Chicago North Shore vs. Fort Worth, Texas.
Audi driving Master of the Skico Universe vs. pick-up driving banned Skico whistleblower.
Aspen Institute green “limousine liberal” vs.“Don’t tread on me” NRA/Tea Party occupier.
Castle Creek free market DU MBA vs. Burlingame public housing unionizer Sorbonne-attending PhD.
Skier vs. snowboarder.
Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker.
Elite 1% vs. 99%.
Or a moguls contest on AH’s Scarlett’s instead of all this legal stuff? Man to man. It would be so in line with Aspen’s history. But if I win, Skico has to pay more than $9.25/hr. u call a “living wage” here & I get my job back. Full disclosure: I was freestyle aerial certified. But I’ll even flip on a snowboard and u can use those skis Roger Marolt pokes fun of u about.
And that’s the paradox of the public space, everyone may kind of know something unpleasant, but once someone says it, it changes everything.
Therefore, I cannot resist:
Paula Crown, PhD candidate at the Art Institute of Chicago, is on President Obama’s arts council; Michelle has lunch at Paula’s palace; General Dynamics, a merchant of death, and Wall Street’s JP Morgan Chase are prosperous.
What was the name of that Dan Sheridan song Skico has banned?“Big $”?
28th amendment to get the big $$$ out of politics already?
So back to skiing, AspenSnowCEO, are you in?
