April, I've been traveling and going in to that area since the early 1950's. No I haven't met any of the Manson family, nor do I have a desire to. Are you saying, do you believe that the facts against them are wrong, that they didn't kill the people they were convicted of?? Do you think that Charlies followers, who sat in and out of court lamenting poor Charlie's troubles, are just a flock of bright intelegent people??? Do you think that Charlie was really out there to do good?? You really need to pull your head out of the sand and ditch your rose colored glasses. Are you even old enough to have been aware of what Charlie did 30+ years ago? How old were you when that happened??? Wake up and look at all the facts about Charlie and his bunch. As far as the miners distroying the land, think again. In my almost 50 years of travel out there the MOST damage is caused by Mother Nature. The BLM and their cabin burning binges rank right up there with her too. The Death Valley area has more mining history in it's past then anything else. I'm happy to see the jobs and money that is brought in to the ecomomy because of mining. If you do some real detective work you'll see that I still have mining interests in Goler Canyon. I'm not distroying the country side or ruining the enviroment either. The desert is out there for EVERYONE to use and enjoy, if you can't see that, you haven't woke up yet or ditched your rose glasses.
