Mas Ebay, Mas Squeaky


In this photo she looks positively happy... as if she REALLY believed that pulling a non working handgun on the President of the United States was a good thing, it would help the cause and make the world listen to her Charlie.

To be honest, it is not like everyone made out that she was Charlie's favorite or something. She seemed to me to be kind of mid level throughout the "glory days" of 67-69. She comes into her own when the rest head to jail.

If you check the Manson 70 tape I uploaded a while back on YOUTUBE there is a sequence at Spahn's with her hold the LIE album and she seems mildly retarded. I know she isn't and do not mean to imply that she is or even was.

But what kind of delusion causes you to throw your life away and then still stick to it?

What kind of delusion? The kind that I described in the previous post. Respond to it. Question it. It can be explained.

Col sometimes the questions you ask, well it's like you are reading my mind but you phrase them much better than I ever could.

And scramblehead, your response in the previous post: thank you for the pleasure of reading it.

One thing that I always remember about Squeaky was the part in his book where Bravin describes her shooting a staple gun up and down her arm while at an afterschool job. I guess maybe she was what would now be referred to as a "cutter"?

It is pretty amazing how so many years after all those failed revolutionary predictions and nearly unanimous defections by all her old friends that Lynn retains this faith. And she doesn't even HAVE direct contact with Charlie, does she? Maybe all the letters from teenagers who freshly discover Manson Thought help keep her going. God I can't construct a coherent thought today, sorry for sounding like Yoda without the wisdom I need a nap.

Col dice

Mas ebay, mas Squeaky'

Thanks Col for this - I see you are dipping into Spanglish (¿te parece un acento más o menos por ahí?) and as possibly the only native born speaker of Spanish on the blog I thank you in the name of Latin America.
