The Passion of Two Nations

SOMETIMES A GREAT NATION

I just don’t believe it, another article about John Lennon (“The storm over John Lennon,” Cover, Oct. 17). It seems like every time I approach the magazine section of a store, I see one more picture of Lennon and one more exposé on his torrid lifestyle.
