Re.: "Done with pot heads in Breck," Letters Nov. 4:

In response to Anne from W. University, Texas, I felt compelled to 
offer a rebuttal:

My concern is that many locals will generalize all Texans as being 
rowdy, ignorant, or numb to the "local way of life." I have been to 
Breckenridge numerous times, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Having 
this "elitist" person essentially ruining the reputation of all 
Texans is appalling. Also, the others that have left the locals with 
a bad taste in their mouths, are in the minority. The majority of us 
Texans are well mannered, and genuinely care about others. There is 
no need to act the way some have, and I apologize on behalf of all of 
them. I will keep coming up there as many times as I can . I would 
miss it too much not to.

Just as Texas attracts many different types of people, so does the 
great state of Colorado. Differences make the world go round. Please 
don't let the minority ruin it for the rest of us.

To all the locals: Keep on keepin' on, do your thing . We'll be back.
