this day in crime history: october 8, 2004

On this date in 2004, domestic diva Martha Stewart reported to the Alderson Federal Prison Camp in Alderson, WV where she became inmate number 55170-054. Alderson, also known as “Camp Cupcake,” had previously been home to jazz great Billie Holiday, World War II propaganda queens Axis Sally and Tokyo Rose, and would-be presidential assassins Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme and Sara Jane Moore.

Stewart, who had been convicted of four counts of obstruction, was paroled on March 4, 2005, an event she would doubtless describe as “a good thing!”

    My god, is it THAT time of year AGAIN?
    I keep forgetting that I SHOULD be associating AUTUMN with Martha signing into Camp Cupcake!
    Considering what SHE did versus what a LOT of politicians have done (and are still doing), she should have gotten a Congressional appointment!

    Also… a GOOD thing…LOL.

    Stay safe out there.
