Colorado Dems Name Gay Man To State Chair

Rick Palacio will head the Colorado Party going in to the 2012 elections, having won more than 50 percent of the vote in this weekend’s convention. He has quite a legacy going. His grandparents were miners in Colorado and his grandmother survived the 1914 Ludlow Massacre, when Colorado National Guard troops opened fire on a tent encampment of 1,200 striking miners and their families.

I believe the National Guard opened fire on striking miners while some minors and their families were caught in the massacre.

Minors or minErs? it might be nearly 100 years of the massacre, but that little letter makes all the difference in how it is read.

Although minors died in the battle, it was striking miners which drew the Guard’s and the governor’s ire.

Either way Bobby I don’t think they were “caught” in it by chance, it was pretty much an all-out attack on the entire colony.
