Here's that and a couple of other final words from Charles Manson.
Charles Manson: Bundy's a rumpkin, Bundy's a poop butt. Bundy's his mama's boy, Bundy's out there trying to prove something to his own manhood that's got nothing to do with me. I don't roll around with poop people like that. I stand with people that can stand with themselves.

I did a hundred years a day.

Charlie Rose: You get a lot of mail?
Charles Manson: Yeah
Charlie Rose: What do they say, these letters?
Charles Manson: Everyone's playing a different game with a thought. They're playing boats, and planes, and trains, and rabbits, and ducks, and um... swings, and hearts, and little girls, and everything you can think of. When we started the rainbow uh...uh the rainbow all the thoughts that go with that. The seed grows up from the ground, everything that starts to grow, grows up. You go down into the earth to plant something, you plant these seeds and this garden grows. It's the same thing in the garden in the mind.
Charlie Rose: I want to talk about that, but lets stay on your routine the facts of your life for a while. What about the scorpions, do you make scorpions?
Charles Manson: Yeah, I make little things out of string.
Charlie Rose: Where do you send them?
Charles Manson: Everywhere. Wherever they fit.
Charlie Rose: do somebody pay you for them?
Charles Manson: No.
Charlie Rose: Why scorpions?
Charles Manson: Well, it's not just scorpions I make all kinds of things. Scorpions are just one of the things I happen to make. I'm spiritually allied with the scorpion and the wolf. See spiritualism scares you people, because you've got this little stereotype church that you're buying and selling and you're trying to put God in a building. But God is much bigger than that little church and spiritualism is a lot more than they put into library’s and books.
Charlie Rose: Most religious people know that.
Charles Manson: Yeah well I am allied with certain awarnesses of the desert.
