Good riddance  
Charles Manson has finally been flushed from the bowl of life.

Ah, see; one might think that, but it's not so. He's been in prison with no chance of parole for almost half a century; by any logic, he and his horrid crimes ought to have been flushed down the memory-hole long ago, but the media has gone to great lengths to keep his legend alive in the public's mind all these years. Why would they stop doing that just because he's dead now?

Horrific murder is very popular these days, and the ghost of a horrific murderer is way more fun than an elderly horrific murderer in a max-security prison, so - regrettably - I don't think we've heard the last of Charlie Manson even yet, nor will for years to come. There'll probably be a big new biography of him out in time for the Xmas shoppers.
