Right, I liked Frank the Pug, too...

Or did you mean the tall skinny kid with the big ears? ;-)

Actually - as we drift more and more uncontrollably off-topic
- my favorite character from MiB was "Jack Jeebs," the
alien who ran the shady pawn shop ("...or I'll shoot you
where it doesn't grow back!"). I just like the fact that
Jeebs and Adrian Monk are the same person...:)

I had a BF 25 years ago......why the WHAT???

I will quote Chaucer about a woman who had gone on the Crusades, a
rather randy event for many:
"She hadde passed many a straunge stream"

He and Yoko did their first "bed-in" in '69 (1969 is thought to be the
height of the peace movement for Vietnam) and were involved long before
that. Either way, he motivated a lot of young people to join the peace
movement, and not many other individuals did so (MLK, Jr. being another
example). While few people knew of groups like SANE or the "Mobes"
almost everyone knew of Lennon and that kind of influence/attention is
what is needed in such movements. I don't think we have a contemporary
equivalent, sadly.
