"The parole board does not hold my life in its hands. And I don't want to be too critical, but men tend to think they do."

"Charlie never thought he did. He never expressed all this desire for power, this desire for acceptance."

"Charlie" = Charles Manson. The statement is from Squeaky Fromme — Lynette Fromme — who will be released on parole.

They don't know if she still corresponds with Manson? Wouldn't that be germane to the parole hearing?

In 1978 Fromme said "...when people treat you like a child and pay no attention to the things you say, you have to do something."

Well, now we've had 34 years of paying attention to what she has said, and plainly, she is still a horribly screwed up person.

What can she do on the outside, other than get herself back in trouble? Maybe she learned some occupational skills in prison, like computer programming.

Is her target gong to revert to pretty actresses married to movie directors, or is she still fixated on presidents?

I don't understand how the Secret Service allowed this to happen. She attempted to shoot a president! You trolls out there, aren't you afraid she'll try again?

You're forgetting one thing Big Mike. Ford was a Republican.

By the way, why did they call her Squeaky?

She strikes me as one of those truly scary people... the ones who are fundamentally crazy, but who appear quite normal and intelligent on the outside. They become so convinced of their own inherent rightness on some weird idea or philosophy, that they convince themselves that all actions they take to promote that philosophy and get their ideas heard are justified. cf. Unibomber.

That Charlie, a real live and let live kinda guy.

A more thoughtful and inventive system of justice would have sentenced Ms. Fromme to be George Sodini’s girlfriend.

Comrade X said...

ACORN will hire her.

Crimso said...

Get that woman an advanced degree and then a faculty position, stat!

ricpic and Comrade X,

LOL! Fucking hilarious!

Maybe Bill Ayers can help her get tenure at some university.

Or maybe Obama can make her the snitch czar.

Helter Skelter anyone?

I read this this morning, and it just reminded me of how damned old I am. Lynette Fromme has served her sentence, and I remember when she went in. Oh, Christ.

Maybe she and Professor Dohrn can get together and discuss their mutual admiration for ol' Charlie.
