|Reminder: We don't use his name|

As it is in the news today that there is some stuff for sale related to John Lennon's killer, I think it's appropriate to remind everyone that we do not ever mention the name of the man that murdered John Lennon.
At the time of John's death, both Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono made a simple request to John Lennon's fans. Never repeat the name of his killer. Doing so would only give his killer the fame and notoriety he was seeking.
While we can't control the content of the other news sources we link you to here at Beatles News, I hope you notice that, in the descriptions of the stories we've linked to, we never use his name.
To honor John, and to honor Paul and Yoko's request, I hope everyone remembers, and tries not to ever speak the name of John's killer. Together, we can keep the memory of John Lennon alive, while his killer fades into obscurity.
