    Twenty years ago today, John Lennon was senselessly murdered by an
    obsessed fan outside his New York City apartment. An icon to millions
    to this day, Lennon is remembered for both his music and his activism
    for world peace. Vigils and memorial services have been planned
    worldwide, including ones at Strawberry Fields in New York's Central
    Park, Lennon's childhood home in Liverpool, and the John Lennon
    Museum outside Tokyo. Readers can find out more about these tributes
    and Lennon's legacy beginning with the BBC's site, which includes
    analysis, related articles and links, and some audio and video
    selections. ABC News offers a feature-rich interactive Webumentary on
    the life and music of John Lennon (and his FBI files), with photos, a
    discography, commentary, and audio clips. Additional coverage and
    commentary is available from the _New York Times_ (free registration
    required), the _Baltimore Sun_, _The Nation_, and dotmusic. Finally,
    users may want to visit the Website of NPR's Fresh Air with Terry
    Gross. Her show today features three interviews remembering John
    Lennon, with Yoko Ono, historian John Wiener who uncovered the secret
    FBI files, and Cynthia Lennon, his first wife.
