Squeaky Dirty

Friday is the 33rd anniversary of Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme (no relation to Ethan if equally self-destructive) trying to assassinate Gerald Ford, as she evidently didn't think Chevy Chase's satire was cutting enough. Perhaps still bitter that she got left off the Manson A Team and therefore was not part of the grisly Tate/LaBianca murders, Fromme had to do something to make herself stand out. It wasn't her fault we had such a nondescript president (after all, he wasn't elected, but that's true for W., too). To make up for that she wore a red nun-like outfit that went smashingly with her hair and a desire to save the redwoods, and nothing says, "Yeah Trees!" like shooting the leader of the free world. Of course we need to forgive Fromme some, for as a teen she was part of a dance group that appeared on Lawrence Welk. Polkas could drive anyone into Manson's arms.

I ever tell you about my old friend that I have good reason to believe is the unacknowledged child of Squeaky and Charlie?
