from Michael Moore in Walsenburg, Huerfano County, Colorado:"In town today there were these two Fords forlornly advertising the local industry, which seems to have devolved into people trying to sell overpriced "antiques" to passing tourists... A nice original two door sedan...[actually that's maybe a Chevy, now that I look at it !] [[Nah, it's Ford Town Coupe--AL]]
Just off Fourth Street, half a block east of our storage building and within sight of the Huerfano County courthouse, this shoebox... somebody once put a tarp over it, but they wandered off, alas...That would be the courthouse in the background, on the steps of which Mother Jones proclaimed "if the men weren't man enough to go on strike the women will" either just before she was arrested or just after making bail around 100 years ago. The Ludlow Massacre (AL-see David Mason's novel-in-verse, Ludlow) soon followed, and the rest is history, as they say, ongoing; meanwhile we have this four-door from the fifties, languishing...
