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 dbarney@redmondmag.com.
