Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme on Writing
“Anybody can kill anybody.”
“I do not have the answers and as a woman I do not intend to play my own thoughts over the truth. I can clearly state the problems and tell you that I suffer from them.”
“We all came from houses with doors, doors that were supposed to be closed when there were things going on that we weren’t supposed to see, and when our pants were down.”
[re: approaching Gerald Ford with an unloaded weapon] “He looked like cardboard to me… but at the same time, I had ejected the bullet in my apartment, and I used the gun as it was.”
[re: Charles Manson] “I know I laid a lot of my thinking in his mind.”
“I am co-counsel and as co-counsel I have the right to represent myself, speak for myself and conduct myself and my trial by myself in my best interests in order of due process.”
“Keep talking about moving toxic wastes, but never let it cross your mind to quit producing them.”
“People have already shown you can lay blood in front of them and they’re not, you know, they don’t think anything of it.”
“When the circumstances are right, everything becomes a dance.”
“Usually a person who does what I did doesn’t repeat it.”
“It’s in everybody.”

What she says above about “toxic wastes” makes not<100% sense to me.
1000 hamsters turning 1000 wheels for 1000 years will occasionally produce squeaky 'words'.
Does 'picking signal from noise' = "rational"? –and 'signal' = "poetry"?
Thanks for this. Murder book.
I always kind of had the hots for her.
One of my favorites in this series.
I actually really like the line “We all came from houses with doors…”
I think that would be a great first line in a story.
Actually, for some weird reason, I think it would be a great first line for a novelization of The People Under the Stairs, as told from the point of view of either one of the boys in the basement or Alice.
