"It was twenty five years ago today:" John Lennon RIP

Pundit Guy has a remembrance and links aplenty.

I'll never forget where I was when I heard John Lennon was dead. I had just finished Part I of the Bad Poetry Slam judging, and I heard someone say, "John Lennon was shot in 1980."

And I thought, "Man, that's harsh." And also: "I have to do a better job of keeping up with news about this 'rock and roll' music the kids are all into these days."

And then I thought: "I just totally ripped off a joke from the letters page of 15 year old National Lampoon."
