30 years ago tonight I was working on the stock crew at a Winn-Dixie in Pensacola, Florida. As always, we had the store’s PA system cranked up, listening to the radio after hours as we worked. Suddenly the music was interrupted by a news flash that John Lennon had been shot outside his apartment in New York. At first we all thought it was a hoax, but as more reports started coming in, we realized it was true. John was my favorite Beatle.
