Re: “Welcome to Kolorado, Klan Kountry

My grandfather, Gerome Torribio, was a first generation Italian immigrant living in Trinidad during the 1920s. One day the Klan marched downtown where he worked in a hardware store. He spotted the mayor in the parade, and called out, "Hey, Mayor, why are you hiding in that bedsheet? I know you from your worn-out brown shoes!" That night, the Klan burned a cross on the top of Simpson's Rest behind his house. That's a family story we are proud of--thanks for this article.
