Does this mean the Dark Tower plot is thickening and reaching the real world???


SARASOTA, FL. - Some excitement at the Sarasota City Commission meeting Tuesday, when a California man spoke out about who he thinks really killed John Lennon.
During public comment, a man with signs who identified himself as Steve Lightfoot, took a seat in front of commissioners saying he wanted to expose the truth. He then went on to allege that part-time Casey Key resident and author Stephen King was the person that killed John Lennon.
"I'm from California. I'm known by 10% of Florida. I'm known by 50% of California. I'm the man exposing the truth about John Lennon's murder. Stephen King, Casey Key resident, shot John Lennon. He's not suing me...my van says it all over the place," said Lightfoot. He claimed that "Stephen King is the worst criminal the state of Florida has ever harbored."
Sarasota mayor Lou Ann Palmer told the man that comments at the meeting must be reserved for city business. "This does not relate to the city of Sarasota," said Mayor Palmer. Casey Key is under Sarasota County jurisdiction.
The mayor summoned Police Chief Peter Abbott, who escorted the man and his signs peacefully out of the chamber to the sound of chuckles from people attending the meeting.

That dude is delusional and needs to get his butt back to California where such behavior is a normal part of daily life.

I've had such a good day that I think I'll do that again.

*runs out of thread, runs back in, tackle hugs Dino and gives him a big kiss*

You're right. That guy belongs in the looney bin. Excuse me while I go put some clothes on.

Max, darling, I would if I could, but this is a special moment that Silver King and I occasionally share. It is my sincere hope that one day, after such an episode, he will catch a fish for me and ship it to Ohio.

A flounder would be nice.

Pssst, Max, check your e-mail for arousing evidence. But don't tell anyone where it came from.

Because that's where many of the seriously deranged people from other parts of the world come to settle when they've lost their minds. Then they sit in the sun all day, which only makes matters worse until they're compelled to attend commission meetings to share conspiracy theories where conspiracies never existed in the first place until that very moment.

It's gotten me to wonder, though: Exactly what was Stephen King up to on the night in question? It might be worth investigating...

This is in no way a funny story. People everywhere suffer from delusions. We need to be sympathetic towards them. We do not need to make fun of them and mock them publicly. It is a heavy burden for a family to carry and it's a heavy burden for the delusional person to carry once they are brought back to health. Show some sympathy.

Oh, great, another rumor I must now deflect among countless others.

I've only killed one person, and he wasn't even famous or anything. And it's Rob's fault anyway. When he said, "Ban his ass," I thought he said, "Can his ass."

On the bright side, I still have bait left in the freezer for five or six more trips offshore.

Post I of II.


This man is clearly suffering grave paranoid delusions and severe (albeit amusing) psychoses. Apparently, his harassment factored into King’s move to Florida. For our entertainment, quotes from his website. (Warning: cruel, bigoted language and general absurdity to follow.)

His theory:


Namely, that John Lennon was, not only politically assassinated, but that Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and, you’d better sit down, horror novelist Stephen King are the three people who can be proven guilty of the crime. King being the real murderer and Chapman but a look-alike, paid actor misleading you with an absolute hoax, the media in tow.

Apparently, he doesn’t know that John Nash has this covered:


The evidence, specifically, is government codes in the bold print headlines of Time, Newsweek, and U.S. News and World Report magazines that were printed shortly before, during, and after the night of December 8, 1980. Hints in the headlines that you won’t find anywhere else that plug into John Lennon’s assassination with up to 70% frequency at times.

About Stephen King:

Stephen King is a murderer. He shot John Lennon in the back, like the coward he is, and stole a musical/political genius from all of you. He ruined your world
deliberately, and now you are living in the nightmare he has created for you.


King won't dare sue me either because that would cast media attention on my hard, incontrovetible evidence against him and that would mean life in prison. Have you noticed how many of King's books dwell on life in prison: The Green Mile. Shawshank Redemption, The Cell, etc.? …


King is a sociopath who shot Lennon to get back at all of you for teasing him as a child and because he wanted to kill his father for walking out on him when he was two. King wishes you all WOULD expose him before he gets killed only he doesn't have the guts to say so…


I want King to live, to tell us all what he knows about the government and the Jewish/communist plot against the U.S.. I want to see Chapman arrested for his role as decoy. I want to see what's Yoko got to do with everything, too. DON'T ALL OF YOU? You can't just sit around like fools and get steamrolled any more by our governments history of always killing your heroes.

Post II of II (warning: offensive content).

To the evol town of Portland, Maine:

I think it is safe to say that it harbors more distemper and meanness and immature pettiness, perhaps even more inbreeding than most of America. It's no wonder it's people produced the monster that is Stephen King. Just like the brats in Carrie who poured pigs blood on the prom queen. King was born in Portland, Maine. When I first visited Portland in 1992 someone tried to pour sugar in my gas tank and someone else kicked a dent in my fender...


Good luck after I'm famous Portland, Maine. You're not all bad but collectively it's no surprise that Mohammed Atta and his accomplice slept there the night before they attacked N.Y.C.. I can see you all now; "Fatso! Four Eyes! Frogface! We don't want you on OUR team!" Stop being so mean and petty, you jerks. I know you freeze every winter and have a lot to be miserable about but America does not appreciate the fact that you tormented King into becomming a vengeful, sociopathic monster. You are all responsible in spite of the fact that King was a jerk unto himself anyway without your cruelty.

And pure, unadulterated abuse to his non-believers in New York:


No, you un-American weaklings want to all go Soviet rather than put up a fight, apparently. I'd rather be dead than red, you'd all rather be red than dead. Big difference. Ironically I'm sure I value life more than any of you, besides. Look at how little you valued the life of John Lennon; no trial yet for anybody. And me, more truth hero than you deserve, I am viewed as a fringe element nobody by most of you. Poor all of you. Whatever pun-ishment God allows to happen to you, be it a plane attack that kills thousands or a nu-clear bomb detonated in New York City, it will be a fate you, not I, deserved. Are ANY of you people good enough and strong enough to help me out my evidence, first? If not then you are not Americans at all. You're just slobs and silent Soviets. Not men. I know you all mean well but you're all not well. Please, get well, sick public.

Wait. Didn't that one guy confess to the murder, and there were witnesses, and now he's in prison and even though he served his sentence he can't be released because people will try to kill him, and Yoko, who saw that one guy shoot her husband, has stated she doesn't feel safe if he isn't in prison? And did I mention he confessed? Maybe I imagined that. In fact, maybe Yoko is in on it. Because if someone murders your husband, you'd lie about who did it, right?

It didn't have anything to do with John Lennon, but I can't think of why Steve and I were eating gelato at a picnic table discussing my husband and this new computer thingy for writers that seemed really great in the dream, but redundant and unwieldy once I woke up and thought it through.
