they also ran the following little story about an anonymous caller with a suggestion for a motive in the TLB murders. It's a real eye-roller!
I have a good idea of who was living in Berkeley and a Manson sympathizer at that time, bet you do too! Sounds like the type of lame-brain thing he would do....
Okay, did you read the article? Assuming that anyone in the Family was naïve enough to have made this purchase mistaking oregano for pot is just silly. Let's do the math to examine just how asinine this is.
A kilo is 2.2 pounds so 63 kilos works out to 138.6 pounds of oregano! I bet the entire state of California couldn't have put together that many pounds of oregano at once at that time in history.
I have vague recollections of pot going for $5 a matchbox or $10 a lid back in the '60's. Don't recall how much a key went for, probably because I never bought one, but let's say it went for the ridiculously low price of $250 per key. That would come to $15,750.00. Holy Cow (braised in a nice burgundy with a little oregano)! How in the heck would the Manson Family have come up with that kind of dough to have made the purchase in the first place?
