Dear Bob:

I’ve tried in vain for months to secure substantiation for the ad claims made, I believe by your realty tourism subsidy group, in the November 2008 issue of US Airways Magazine. Please assist me.

In referenced two-page spread, prospects are lured to Telluride with these product promises: “5-star lodging, dining and spas,” and, later, “five-star restaurants.”

Kindly list for me each five-star lodge, restaurant and spa, the rating body and pertinent rating period. Also kindly provide me with the name of my elected official(s) who approved this copy.

Thank you.

Honesty is the best policy should we expect any less? Sad that this appeal had to be made in the paper but I am sensing that the author was exasperated. Maybe with greater ethics would come better advertising to inform people about what we all appreciate about Telluride. It isn't Aspen and anyone who comes expecting Aspen will be disappointed. But there are plenty of people who are not looking for another Aspen. Hucksterism is the beginning of a death spiral!
