"Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd
His skin was pale and his eye was odd"
Hat tip to James Taranto at Opinion Journal for posting a link to this article on the Court TV web page detailing the true facts of the Sweeney Todd story.
OC Chronicle is on the road in San Diego this week and we wasted a great hour reading this after the kids and Mrs. OC went to sleep.
We always thought the Sweeney story was mostly legend, but according to this account, the details are true and remarkably similar to our favorite musical.
