Thirty Years Ago Today

If you haven't missed it, it was 30 years ago today that John Lennon was shot and killed outside his NYC home.

All the fans are rabid in their continuous mourning.

Yes, John was a wonderful singer/songwriter.

Yes, he is and always will be missed.

But why do we have to have this outspread crazy ass mourning? And why only on two days out of the year?

He's gone.

He's not coming back.

We don't know what he would have done had he lived. How much music he would have made, or anything.

I believe we should celebrate the life he lived, which wasn't necessarily a great one, ask Cynthia and Julian. He made mistakes, because believe it or not, he was human, albeit a very talented one. But better than celebrating his life, just celebrate his music, because it is all we have left.
