Farewell, strangely over-famous author whose work I stubbornly (to this day) have refused to read...I have no idea why I haven't read it. I mean, I tried: but it just didn't interest me.

Bollocks would Lennon still be alive.  Nutters thrive on any excuse, any influence - it's rubbish to suggest that mental case wouldn't have murdered Lennon without the influence of CITR - I would be surprised if Keefaz and billytray genuinely think that's the case.  If it wasn't CITR it would be some other shit, he'd have done it either way in all likelihood. 

 

Plus I don't get how the fuck he was influenced to kill John Lennon after reading that book, doesn't make sense - does anyone else actually get that?

CITR had fuck all to do with it. Marck Chapman was jealous of John lennon because he didn't become famous and Lennon was. He's fucked up in the head basically
