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:
