Subject:    Aaron Manson

Whilst channel hopping and eating my lunch one day this week (I know, terrible 
habit) I came across the repugnant Charles Manson holding forth on his favourite 
philosophical tenets. One has to assume he is not an avid reader of 
Shakespeare's works but what he was saying went something like this. "I killed a 
few. Killing 400 people. Now there's a real contribution." "Give me a chance and 
I'll kill you all!"  And one that made me shiver -- "I only regret I didn't kill 
more of 'em." and I remembered some lines spoke by Aaron in Titus Andronicus.

Act 5 Scene 1

LUCIUS: Art thou not sorry for these heinous deeds?

AARON: Ay, that I had not done a thousand more.
...........................
Tut, I have done a thousand dreadful things
As willingly as one would kill a fly,
And nothing grieves me heartily indeed
But that I cannot do ten thousand more.

Spooky or what?

SAM SMALL
