Best theme party week EVER. Today we find:
- Squeaky Fromme is getting out of jail soon! Unlike Leslie Van Houten, who has been repentant and rehabilitated for decades, Squeaky is still as nutty as they come and, along with her BFF Sandra Goode, declared herself a nun. So, yeah, she tried to kill the president of the United States, and she gets let out of jail while Leslie, who didn't kill anybody, must be kept away forever. Somebody didn't hire the right publicist.
- Speaking of which, better late than never, parts two and three of John Waters' reminiscences of his friendship with Van Houten are up at the Huffington Thing.
- NPR interviewed Waters about writing about Leslie Van Houten.
- ABC News in LA came up with the awesome title "40 Years After the Fear" for their celebration.
