Didn't John sign MDC's Double Fantasy before he got shot? I wouldn't want something that that horrible MDC had blue-meanie

*17* Paul agrees. 

Step on the gas and wipe that tear away.

I think it's me being a paranoid. Sorry. But still, I don't think I would pay that much..

This sort of links to what oneafter909 was saying, but apologies for derailing the thread slightly! a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

 

Anyway, I don't know if any of you have seen this before, but this is a letter from Mark David Chapman to a music dealer asking, among other things, if he could have his signed copy of Double Fantasy back. He wanted to sell it and give the proceeds to a children's charity. He says "I felt it was the least I could do."

He should have a death penalty. I don't believe a word that man says, who could trust him?

Not to get into a big Chapman debate, but I don't think New York State even allows the death penalty. I'll do some research.

Hmm yeah, I know some states don't allow DPs. He's still in prison though, right?

Yeah he's definitely still in prison, and he's been denied parole something like six times. I think it's unlikely he'll ever be released; can you imagine the public backlash?

Also on that Letters of Note website there's a letter written by Yoko Ono to the parole board explaining why he shouldn't be released.

She was doing so well until she confused "it's" and "its", at which point I shifted my sympathies to Chapman.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Unfortunately you can't kill whoever you dislike, a message that no one told George W. Bush (just kidding).

Other then Osama, I'm drawing a blank. Who else did he try to/succeed in assassinating?

Grammatical errors aside, I think this is the one thing that I can respect Yoko for. She's now been upgraded from "totally useless."

Woah, this is real derailment. 

But yeah, if they would really release him, someone would shoot him, really.

Haha, yeah.

stay-on-topic would I pay that much for a signed copy of Double Fantasy ? I don't think I would. Not even if I was filthy rich, well, maybe.
