"You'd think that given the HUGE role Manson played in his life and fame, that Vincent would have the human curiosity for maybe one more sit down with Charlie, just for history sake. It would be grand theatre. I've never understood people who had within their means to create 'epic moments' and yet just never seemed the least bit interested in doing so".
I'd pay good money to see the elderly Vincent T. Bugliosi and Charles Manson, square-off in an isolated room for one hour. Old adversaries talking shop (as it were), one last time. At this point, I bet the two old buzzards would probably get along pretty good.
I'd love to see them talk about "old times" (i.e., the girls' famous street corner vigil, etc)... and moreover... the crimes themselves, and the trial. I'm sure Manson would probably crack a few jokes.
I wonder if the notion of meeting with Manson (one last time) has ever crossed Bugliosi's mind. I also wonder, if Manson would actually accept Bugliosi's invitation.
Leary... this is one of your better "hypotheticals". A meeting of these two adversaries after 4+ decades, would surely be... historic and epic. As an enthusiast of TLB, it's hard to argue otherwise.
