This is out of the blue:
The president she tried to assassinate has been dead for nearly three years, and her longtime idol and leader, Charles Manson, remains in prison.
However, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme is about to get her first taste of real freedom in more than three decades.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Fromme, now 60, is set to be released on parole August 16.
She has spent more of her life in prison than out of prison, and she clearly wasn’t very stable when she went into prison. I just wonder how people like her are supposed to make it on the outside.
As a side note, I had completely forgotten Ford was dead. I had to google it- but sure enough, he died around Christmas in 2006. Must be losing my memory in my advanced age.
