And on the lighter side of John Lennon's death...
Stephen King Shot John Lennon!


So the story goes like this. I'm driving down a busy California street in rush hour when I see this van with all kinds of stuff written all over it. The van was many car lengths ahead, but as someone who will go out of his way to read a bumper sticker, a whole van full of stuff to read was well worth the aggressive driving it would take to catch up. I was one car length behind him when the stoplight we were approaching turned yellow and was just about red when the lady in front of me decided to stop. I lost him.

Several minutes later, when the light was green again, I continued up the road. A couple of miles down the road, I see the van parked in front of an apartment building. The guy wasn't in it, but I had my camera with me and I began clicking away.

In the windows were lots of different articles. Some from Time and Newsweek and some were written by him with a typewriter. I was in too much of a hurry to read them all, but the jist of it was that quotes from Reagan and Nixon in a couple of these articles were actually government codes pertaining to government conspiracy to kill John Lennon.

It was all very entertaining, but a little hard to buy. Either way, I thought it'd be worth sharing with the world.
