Manson Mania

Lee Siegel makes an interesting point about Charles Manson in his review of the new TV movie Helter Skelter*:
[I]f one of Manson's victims hadn't been the beautiful young actress Sharon Tate, the wife of Roman Polanski--the questions, the suspicions, the titillation that followed!--and if his disciples hadn't killed her in her glamorous Bel Air mansion, no one would even remember him today.
