Assorted John news

- Read about the short yet productive stretch of time that John lived at Tittenhurst Park in Ascot.

- John's handwritten lyrics for "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" sold for nearly $250,000 at an auction in May; one of his microphones (referenced in the top article) brought in significantly less; and a copy of Double Fantasy that he signed mere hours before his death was procured for about $40,000.

- Reportedly, Yoko is threatening to sue the owner of a Lennon-themed bar for copyright infringement.

- Satirist Stephen Colbert strengthens the case for John as a conservative.

- Lastly, Rolling Stone: "Bob Dylan on Drugs, John Lennon and Much More in 1969"
