Since Patty and her plight have begun to fall into obscurity, this weekend's songs are going to focus on her and her 1974 dalliance with the Symbionese Liberation Army. First up is a 1976 doo-wop single by The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo called "You Got Your Baby Back." Well, sure you got her back, but will she ever be the same???

As Halloween draws near, I've begun to think about costume options, and whether I want to come up with something new or go with one of my favorite old standbys: heiress-turned- brainwashed bank robber Patty Hearst. The only problem with the costume is that these days not a whole lot of people know who Patty is/was. But then again, maybe that's a plus. The people who do are probably the people I want to know!
