Charles Manson Dies at 83; Wild-Eyed Leader of a Murderous Crew
Charles Manson, one of the most notorious murderers of the 20th century, who was very likely the most culturally persistent and perhaps also the most inscrutable, died on Sunday in Kern County, Calif. He was 83 and had been behind bars for most of his life.
He died of natural causes in a hospital, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said in a news release.
Convicted of nine murders in all, Mr. Manson was known in particular for the seven brutal killings collectively called the Tate-LaBianca murders, committed by his followers on two consecutive August nights in 1969.
I spoke to Katie about 4 days ago, and I said:
"There's not gonna be a big hoopla when Manson dies. He'll disappear like a fart in the wind".
And then, I went-on to explain why...
Up to this point, it seems my prediction was accurate.
Manson's death isn't even a "trending tropic" on Facebook.
That's pretty pathetic, when you consider all the benign topics which ARE trending today.
By tomorrow, the News outlets will be back to Trump's "Tweets" and Thanksgiving.
The fact is...
Much of the "TLB community" deludes themselves into thinking that "TLB/Manson" is still a hot topic nationwide... but, sorry to say, it's just not.
There are roughly 325 million people in this country.
How many people are involved in the "TLB community"?
Let's just say 5,000 for shits-n-giggles... it's a drop in the bucket.
I remember when "Star" was engaged to Manson.
Some people on "the boards" claimed that "Star" was marrying Manson for his valuable "estate". LOL
Are these people kidding me???
Charles Manson has been making spiders out of his socks for 5 decades.
What "estate" are these people talking about?
Manson once described himself as a "Nobody"... and in 2017, that's pretty-much the case.
Only 4 things are going to come from his death:
#1) A couple hundred "collectors" will be buying and selling worthless junk on Ebay.
#2) A couple hundred mentally unstable people will be forced to find someone new to follow. (Many of the same people... LOL).
#3) Leslie and Bruce's chances at parole will increase somewhat, now that the "boogeyman" is gone.
#4) A dozen crappy TLB books and movies will surface in the next 3-5 years... all jam-packed with shit we've seen/heard a million times.
