John Lennon's bloodied glasses [above]. Unlike other evidence in the crime [John's bloodied clothes wouldn't be returned to Yoko Ono until after his assassin's trial was completed in August 1981. The clothes were returned in a paper bag. "It's like they were saying, 'Here's your husband in a bag'," Yoko remembered], the glasses were retrieved by Dakota doorman Jay Hastings, and returned to Yoko upon her return from the hospital after John was declared dead on arrival.

On this anniverary of John Lennon's murder (this being the 31st anniversary; to give you an idea of how long ago that was, consider that - in 1980, the year he died - someone celebrating their 31st anniversary would have been married in 1949) - tradition holds that the blog post is about John.

Not that I've tapped that reservoir, but I'm not sure I can outdo these past blogs:

RIP, John
