Wrong info on would-be assassin

In the Feb. 4 News-Gazette, Tricia Stiller wrote a review of the play "Assassins" being presented at the Studio Theatre in the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts.

She stated that Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme and Sara Jane Moore were "two devoted followers of Charles Manson."

It was known at the time of the attempt that Lynette Fromme was an active part of his family, but Sara Jane Moore was not.

From accounts written at the time of her attempt on President Ford's life, Moore was considered more of a left-leaning activist in the San Francisco area rather than a follower of Manson. She and Manson both lived in the same town, though: Charleston, W.Va.
