The murderous mastermind Charles Manson lies dead and buried in a location known only to a few, the secret intended to prevent that site from becoming a shrine for cult followers who still pore over every move he and his “family” made during their 1960s heyday, but he keeps popping back into the headlines every few months.

That’s because Manson’s surviving, still-imprisoned followers continually apply for parole and their requests are repeatedly okayed by California’s Parole Board, leaving it up to successive governors to make sure these heinous criminals remain where they belong, behind bars.

Gavin Newsom’s turn at this has come up a couple of other times, and he’s up again right now. He has until late October to review the file of killer Patricia Krenwinkel and decide whether to let the 74-year-old walk or make another contribution to keeping all the Mansons in prison.
