Thought Better of It

December 8, 2010

As I understand it, thirty years ago today, John Lennon died.  Last year, at lunch from work, an accountant from New York City was explaining how she’d shown her niece around the city.  She showed her The Dakota and explained it was where John Lennon had been shot.  She was surprised that her niece was rather indifferent to that part of the tour.  I decided to not mention that John Lennon had been shot a month after I was born.  It was probably best.
