I saw a thing on TV years ago from back when he was still in prison. They (the corrections officers) were showing the cameras arts and crafts Charlie had made in his cell. They talked about how they would have to confiscate it and throw it all away. I've always thought that was kinda sad.

Some months ago there was a TV show doing a piece about local history in our area. They were interviewing a dude probably in his 80s. Salt of the Earth Carolina boy. He said he did some moonshinin' with Charles Manson back in the day. Charlie slept in the same room with him. The fella said he was a nice guy, and besides that was pretty quiet and kept to himself.

I love little stories like that.
