You say you want a revolution. We all want to change the world. You tell me that it's evolution.

I appreciate this quick overview of John Lennon's political history by Mr. John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute, a man who claims to be a Constitutional attorney but looks to me like a very right-wing pro-Christian zealot who believes that we citizens should "foment change"- but his final suggestion here- that by shooting him Mark David Chapman "neutralized" John, that MDC was working for the FBI or the US government in some way, is completely unfounded and seems to rely solely on the fact that MDC took a "military stance" when he shot John. I'm sorry, that's not evidence. By 1980 John was not particularly dangerous to anyone politically or otherwise except perhaps himself. This seems to keep coming up and wonder how anyone can really justify this type of paranoia. But after checking out Mr. Whitehead's site and the blurb for his book "Stand and Fight: Itís Time for a Second American Revolution" I'm not really surprised.
MDC was a lone nut and you know it, Mr. Whitehead.
