The Gift That Keeps On Giving


From left to right, Larry Harris, Debra Tate, sister of murder victim Sharon Tate and Jean Harris watch scientists and investigators work behind the abandoned Barker Ranch house, Friday, Feb. 22, 2008 in the Panamint Mountains west of Death Valley National Park, Calif. Charles Manson and his followers retreated to the Barker Ranch after a killing spree during the summer of 1969. The high desert wasteland outside of town hides the ranch where a paranoid Charles Manson and his followers holed up after their orgy of murder nearly four decades ago. Now, as then, few venture into this alkaline wilderness _ gold-diggers, outlaws, loners content to live and let live. But a determined group of outsiders recently made the trek. They were in search of more evidence of death. (AP Photo/Gary Kazanjian)


Media superstar and beloved symbol of the 1960s Charles Manson is in the news again, so that's always superfun. Will they find more bodies at Barker Ranch? Stay tuned as the ever-popular Manson Show™ makes an unexpected return to the programming schedule!

EDIT - Kudos to AP for the caption clarification:

I can't believe some enterprising scumbag hasn't spruced up the Manson lair and offered tours to paying customers.

BTW, just what & where is this "town" outside of which "the high desert wasteland hides the ranch where a paranoid Charles Manson and his followers holed up after their orgy of murder nearly four decades ago."

Town? What? Are they talking about Trona?
