charlie, star & melissa

we all know there are two sides to every story and often it’s only a third party that can see the point of view from both sides.   as a third party, i’m really trying here but i’ve come to the conclusion that no one can ever truly understand crazy.

80 year old charles manson is getting married.  he’s marrying an attractive 26 year old girl named afton, who calls herself star.  i am not even going to try and understand this but that’s not what has me so perplexed.  i’m more concerned about star’s mother, melissa burton, who is quoted in today’s ny post: 

“I know [Manson] has made lots of bad choices, but I don’t think he’s dangerous. The media has made him into more of a monster than he is,” she said.

“I’m not scared about [Afton’s] safety and I don’t believe my daughter is brainwashed.

When she first came out with it, I was shocked because the media really makes him look crazy,”

here is a picture of the happy couple:

  1. His arms are folded and he is glaring. She looks pretty serious, too. If this is happy, I don’t want to see them mad!


  2. This young lady hadn’t even breathed yet, when all this happened. History is but a wisp to her. I prefer to think that, than that she is after her 15 minutes of fame (and book rights), or that she is of the same ilk as the rest of his former Family.


    • who knows for sure. . . but it’s truly a sad path she’s chosen. in the end, may it be a good learning experience that she can use to create something good in this world – fingers crossed! 🙂


  3. I so agree with you! Mystifying…..


  4. Crazy crazy does..
