In Horror Novels, the Crazies Are the Sane Ones
Posted by: Keir Graff

In Sarasota, Florida, a city commission meeting heard from a guest speaker who promoted an unusual theory (“Man escorted from commission meeting Tuesday,” mysuncoast.com):

“I’m from California.  I’m known by 10% of Florida.  I’m known by 50% of California.  I’m the man exposing the truth about John Lennon’s murder.  Stephen King, Casey Key resident, shot John Lennon.  He’s not suing me…my van says it all over the place,” said Lightfoot.  He claimed that “Stephen King is the worst criminal the state of Florida has ever harbored.”

Sounds like a scene from a Stephen King novel, doesn’t it? Except that, in a Stephen King novel, the man would have been right–and Stephen King really would have been the man who pulled the trigger . . . . [CUE OMINOUS MUSIC, THUNDER SOUNDS]
