    Btw, I have my innocence back via a chowd who took it upon himself to wish us happy birthdays without regard to team affiliation.

    Here's a song the Beatles recorded in 1994, years after John died. They recorded over a demo John did in 1977. Jeff Lynn of ELO produced it.

    I still have all the Newsday articles related to this laminated and in my closet. I pull them out every now and again. Sad day I had just gotten his latest tape, notice not a CD.

    I remember deciding not to go to the Jets/Saints game and went to central park. It was very surreal being in a crowd of 100,000 and you could hear a pin drop during the moment of silence

    I watched a report on Lennon's death last night on the news. The strange thing is that a group of people were singing "Rain" accompanied by several acoustic guitars. Lennon's spirit must have wanted that tune out there yesterday. Even most Beatle fans don't know that obscure song.

    Here's one I should have posted yesterday as well. Great images of the John.
