Yes and the media frenzy on this waste of skin will be legend.
I say one bullet could have helped divert the funds keeping him in jail for so long to a worthy cause, like building criminal data banks and providing faster DNA id services.

But nooooo, he used valuable air for decades. Shame.

Awww I loved her in the show, by the sounds of things she died worthy of her, surrounded by love with family and friends. How many never get that?

Rest in Peace Della Reese.

Manson’s death, like his life, was wrapped up in the radical politics of the 1960s. He died of natural causes, his execution having been set aside as part of the temporarily successful progressive campaign against the death penalty in the 1970s. Just as it is easy to forget how pro-Soviet the American Left was at times, it is easy to forget how pro-Manson American radicals were. “First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, then they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach. Wild!” That was the assessment of Bernardine Dohrn, the champagne radical who, with her husband, Bill Ayers, participated in a campaign of domestic terrorism, including bombings, and later became cozy with Barack Obama, hosting events for the aspiring politician in her home.

So they are trying to decide whether to bury him or cremate him.
I figure they should cremate him so he gets used to the heat where he's going.

I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

Wouldn't that be considered animal cruelty?

Sad. Kind of a goofy show but I watched it faithfully and always loved his voice. RIP David Cassidy.
