Have a great Christmas holiday, Laura! Looking forward to your stuff here and with Huff in 2007.

Hi, Laura! I can't wait to see what treats you bring us in 2007. Have a fabulous holiday with your family.

There was an attempted Christmastime family annihilation in Phoenix this year. On Wednesday a man killed his wife, but thus far his two stepchildren are still alive, though badly injured.

I should have added -- Merry Christmas (no irony intended), and thank you for the past year of entertainment and education.

Has anyone everheard about Juan Corona one of Americas largest mass murderers? I think there is a good book about him out there but can't remember the name.

BobH

The book on Juan Corona is "The Road to Yuba City".

I have not seen the movie,yet, But will.I read the bloody christmas years ago.
The Lawson family was my husbands family, so i was curious about the story, no one in the family ever talked about it,I guess its just one of those things that hurt and you try to put it to rest.
sometimes we never do understand why or how someone can do such a thing.
Im looking forward to seeing the film.
My heart goes out for the family of anyone who has suffered such a great tragedy.

It is interesting to find so many web sites devoted to the Lawson Massacre of 1929, and to see that it is such a well-known and celebrated event. I heard the story of Charlie Lawson from my mother when I was a young boy. My mother was named Mary Hazel Bowman, the oldest daughter of Walter and Sadie Bowman of Stokes Co, NC. The murders took place the day before her fifteenth birthday. The Bowmans and the Lawsons knew one another well, I have been told, and their children went to school together. I found the story of the massacre hard to believe, but then, my mother wasn’t given to making up stories like that, so I knew it must have been true. I visited my granddaddy Bowman years ago, and he showed me the graves at Walnut Cove, which are in one of the family graveyards.

I don't know if we were related to Charlie but my family is Lawson and my dad was born in 1937 in Stokes Cty. (close to King)
In 1992 when my brother was 21 he shot my mom in her sleep. It wasn't the first time he had killed. He also beat a boy to death when he was 15. Coincidence? I'm not sure...

My family was related to Charlie Lawson on my Dad's side. I remember my mom and my grandmother singing the ballad when I was young and them telling me it was a true story about someone related to our family.
