    Remember this one? Patty Hearst, at age 19, was kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) in 1974 for ransom. After two months of captivity, she "joined" the group, taking the name of "Tania". (This is not an endorsement of getting kidnapped and brainwashed by a cult, but hey, stuff happens, amiright?)

    From the LIFE Magazine blog: A surveillance camera catches American newspaper heiress Patty Hearst during a bank robbery in San Francisco in 1974. She was kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army on Feb. 4 of that year; later joined her kidnappers in this bank robbery; and was imprisoned for almost two years before President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence.

Hearst announced she had joined the SLA and taken a new name, Tania. She was arrested 19 months after her kidnapping and served almost two years in prison before President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence.

    my mom lived in an apartment in NYC, with two children and a her spouse, for $180/month. It was described as being horrifyingly expensive. Now that same apartment was turned into a coop and last sold for $400,000. YIKES.
