Oh that picture. The lighting of the two figures in the same frame is so different that it
immediately suggests a cut and paste job in Photoshop. But nobody in their right mind would put out such an obvious forgery, so it has to be real!

A friend of mine suggests that it's a classic move for the career politician: get yourslef photographed with as many famous people as possible and bring the photos out at an appropriate time.

I would assume it's real. I think the reason for the difference in lighting is just that John was too close to the flash and it caused him to look like that. It was supposedly a rally that Kerry was a speaker at and John introduced him, or something of that nature. So I'm sure there is some kind of proof of that. Doesn't really matter, though. The fact that he met John Lennon isn't going to make me suddenly vote for him for no other reason.

[img]graemlins/laugh5.gif[/img] IMO it does look like it could've been made with PhotoShop, but I think it's just because Lennon's closer to the flash. Besides, given his history I don't doubt that he could have met him at the NY protest rally and had his photo taken with him (or just stood behind him as a friend snapped the picture, lol). Lennon was likely photographed with many other people at the rally as well, just because they were there and supporting a cause that he believed in (no more war). Beyond that, I don't know if Lennon knew anything about Kerry or his politics. Personally, I'd be interested in knowing how much Lennon knew of him and if they even spoke to one another at the rally or anywhere else - not because it would affect my vote, but out of my interest in John Lennon & his beliefs. Anyway, it's a nice picture of John! I wonder when the guy in the background will be running for president...
