Letters to the Editor

Hey Jonny,

I saw the article in the LA Times today, and it reminded me of a story.

My mom, Betty Cohen, was born in Denver 1907 and lived with her parents at 2704 Marion St. After her parents divorced, she lived for a time at the Clifton Hughes Training School for Girls, which I tried to find on a visit last summer, but it's now a park.

She described "Clifton" as a Methodist boarding school, which must have influenced her theology a bit!

She said she used to pray that if her parents got back together, she would "go down to Colfax and convert all the Jews."

Thanks for your great work.

Don't Agonize — Organize!
