Wow! We already know more about Romney’s high school days from half a century ago than we do about Obama’s entire life before he was elected in Illinois, and Romney only clinched then nomination a couple weeks ago!
The local law enforcement people were very worried one night when a gang of motorcycle hippies from Denver threatened to ride up one summer night and teach the whole town a lesson.
The local cowboys and Indians were waiting for them and a fight ensured. No injuries beyond a few scratches and bruises, but the final outcome was one broken storefront window and a motorcycle gang of newly minted short-haired hippies limping out of town southbound on highway #789 to the raucous singing of a combined cowboy and Indian chorus.
Shearing hippies was evidently a fairly popular pass time in that era, especially in Rocky Mountain ranching towns.
