Colorado Ghost Town Photography - Cardiff, Colorado

Out of the blue, 12 years after visiting the site, I received an insulting and threatening series of e-mails by Richard Webb [richw03@gmail.com] who apparently thought I just magically could understand what he was talking about in regards to this site. His lack of grammar, punctuation, and general ad hominem attacks are pretty much what my original post was talking about. He probably could have taken a somewhat different approach, but his e-mails are here, in order :


His introduction : Well first of all look at my heading. I dont know when you wrote this I don't care..... But what I do care about you liberal privileged piece of fucking Clinton Shit that's where I grew up and loved who are you to say white trash? i looked up Cardiff and WTF REALLY! I'm OK I'll tell you no one to anyone I bet your kids hate you.... I bet your dad wished your mom would have been a swallower...so all in all think about where you want to eat before you shit there you fuck..... Sincerely a life long valley really close resident


Understanding the issue in his second e-mail : I looked up Cardiff and u were first page up clicked and was disappointed with the description of what you refer to the area as "White trash"to exactly quote you just amazing how proud u are to be in and apart of this amazing prosperous diverse and productive valley


Achieving an undertanding : OK if that's the case then I sincerely apologize... Maybe you should keep up on your critiques... but if you don't know where Cardiff is why are you writing about it? When people who are proud to show history and local pride look up something for a presentation thinking wow awesome pics let's see what is in store and get humiliated and Shit on by someone who has nothing to do with the valley apparently but anyway enjoy wherever you are and please genuinely keep writing fucked up web sites that u don't keep up on. Eat a dick.


Well, there you have it. 15 years and I managed to piss off one redneck by calling it how it is. Can't win with em all!


My original description : Cardiff was a coal mining town. Today, several dozen of the original coke ovens remain and have been preserved. Several mining relics exist nearby, as do a few original homes. However, these original homes are occupied and surrounded by what can only be described as "White trash" - junk, trailers, and trash now sit in what could have been a very important historic area.
