For many baby-boomers whose formative years coincided with the Swinging Sixties, a mild Monday in early December 1980 will always be remembered as the day the music died. In New York, the enigmatic, charismatic - and frankly often loony - ex-Beatle John Lennon staggered into the entrance hall of the Dakota, the exclusive parkside mansion block that had been his home for nearly eight years. The cassettes of a new song the 40-year-old had just recorded, called Walking On Thin Ice, clattered to the floor as he collapsed - blood flowing from four gunshot wounds.

A few things:
-Catcher In the Rye is very relevant here.
-It is not a secret in any way that the FBI, CIA, and Nixon himself wanted Lennon's influence removed. When he defeated them in court, they certainly had no other option
-Lennon WAS being followed. He WAS being monitored. He WAS the victim of a defamation campaign. Is it that much of a stretch that he WAS the victim of a gov't-sponsored murder?
He looks like CIA to me.
There is even an alphabet agency connection!
