A message from Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono is doing a wonderful job at keeping John Lennon's memory and message alive.


Instant Karma: The Campaign To Save Darfur is Amnesty International's new "Make Some Noise" campaign. In the spirit of peace high profile artists came together in one tribute album covering songs by John Lennon. Proceeds from this album go to aid Amnesty International in the fight to Save Darfur, Sudan.

I saw a recent interview with Yoko on Larry King Live, "The Beatles Reunion"- also with Paul, Ringo, and George Harrison's widow Olivia - to celebrate the 1st anniversary of Cirque du Soleil's Beatles "Love" show. (It's on Youtube.) She talked a little bit about protecting John.

Larry King asked Yoko about John Lennon's death and if it gets any easier and how she feels seeing John (photos, video, etc.)- and she responded that even after all this time, when she saw the "Love" stage she thought of John and got choked up. Larry King being the horrible interviewer he is, just kept going down his list of questions, (looking down at his notepad) and never bothered to say anything in response or have a follow up question. He didn't even acknowledge Yoko's response. Just awful! (Btw: Larry King also flubbed his interview when he asked Ringo a question and referred to him as George. Paul wouldn't let him forget his mistake.)
