Re: House For Sale

I know I could google this.. but who was Ma Baker then? - I've heard the name in Rasputin but never knew it was a real person.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Funny, I've always thought it was Baker but this article refers to Barker. Wonder if they are one of the same Undecided
Bonnie and Clyde were from the same era.  it was common in those days for writers to give gangsters nicknames to make them seem more glamorous.

Re: House For Sale

There was also a song "The Ballad of Bonnie & Clyde" by Georgie fame.
As I child I just loved the hail of bullets depicted at the end of the song.
