December 8 Is also a Day of Infamy

Yesterday marked the anniversary of Pearl Harbor (the event... not the movie with Ben Affleck).

Today is the 30th anniversary of John Lennon's death. I remember it well. I was in college in Vermont, and Dec. 9 was my birthday. Having no money, I pointed out to any and all that it was my birthday, hoping they might take me out for a beer. News traveled slower in those pre-Internet days, and all my friends were too broken up to celebrate my birth. Thanks a lot Mark David Chapman!

Where were you when you heard of Lennon's passing and how did it compare to the deaths of other celebrities and people of power? Share at [email protected]
