But... Charles Manson is up for a parole hearing in 2007.
Oh, and we knew he was loony.. but did you know that he thought that the Beatles were worshipping him and sending him messages in their songs? Specifically songs off of the white album and that he used them in his teachings. He thought the Beatles thought he was Christ.
I was very interested in the Salem Witch Trials. Which weirded my folks out a bit.

when i found out they werent real witches i lost all interest
lol. That's when I became more interested.
If there was a horrific event I knew about, I studied it intensly. Salem Witch Trials, The Spanish Inquisition, The Holocaust, The Burning of Rome, all of the outbreaks of the Bubonic Plague in Europe, Ebola outbreak, Influenza outbreak, The sacking of Alexandria, the genocide of the Native Americans all over North, Central and South America, the Slave trade in early America, Ancient and Medieval torture methods...
The dark, bloody, hysterical (not in the funny way), macabre, dismal, disgusting, horrifying,... they all held a particular interest to me. Mainly in mans constant need to kill itself off by killing eachother. I still find that kind of crap just immensly intriguing from a personal, sociological, anthropological, philisophical and psychological point of view.
Me too! We sound very similar in our twisted interests.

OK lets take this a littel nearer home shall we
Sad isn't it Salem was about hysteria and ill education... aren't they all.
Well it is probably about halucinatory effects of ergot but hey who am I to know about such things.
Want to hear something a bit more ancient?
And very much more personal
Come to my fire children....gather around and learn about the Witches of Pendlehttp://www.pendlewitches.co.uk/http://www.lancs.ac.uk/users/history/studpages/lanchistory/pendle.htmhttp://www.pendlewitchproject.co.uk/
This is something that happened way before salem but does not ahve the world wide publicity...and the connection to me?
Elizabeth Demdyke (old mother Demdyke herself) is my ancestor.
Those of you who don't really know me...wait thats everyone ;-)...will not know that I live in the shadow of Pendle, as my family and families family and my families families family before them...[Mad laughter fades into the distance]
