The good get killed young...
Among Carlin's points was, "Look who gets killed. It's always people who want everyone to love each other. Jesus, Kennedy, Martin Luther King, John Lennon..."
There was a great documentary on VH1 this week. It was in the segment, Classic Albums. The show was about his first solo album after he left the Beatles. There were interviews with Ringo, Yoko, the engineer, friends of John's, etc.
What I got out of it was a new appreciation for how important Yoko was to John and how she helped him become the man he wanted to be. She is so often viewed as an enemy by Beatle fans but John had already left the group in his mind before she came along. He wanted to grow up and live in a mature family relationship. She gave him a love and acceptance that he never had before. In a way she saved his life. (At least this is the spin from the documentary, but it seemed pretty real.)
It's a shame that he was killed. I think George Carlin may have been on to something.
