Wow, 32 years ago and I remember how shocked we all were when we heard the terrible news. Seems so fresh in the memory still, can't really believe that time can go by so fast!

because things used to be new and awesome. now they are routine and dull and days blend together as you waste your life just trying to accumulate enough money to keep it all going.

A kind, decent, nonnative man being murdered for no decent reason was the best thing that ever happened to your country?

other than he basically was a symbol and speaker for the hippie movement. a movement whose repercussions to this day has America deeply divided in a bull**** deluge of class warfare and gender war. A movement that severely dissed our troops and actually thought that free love and drug use was good thing. Thank you hippie movement for giving us things like Charles Manson, play dates, single parent households, HIV among several other really dumb things. If the U.S. government blew up their plane before it landed in america, america would be a better place.

yeah. Yesterday's flower children are today's blooming idiots and Lennon was chief flower child. i couldn't imagine how ****ed this country would be if he was still alive today and he continued to be allowed to spout his non-sense. He's dead and I'm happy for it. Hopefully over time his crappy music spouting subversive communist bull**** will be forgotten.
