Availability of marijuana will increase and the money and violence of The Mexican Cartel's and street gangs will DECREASE directly as a result of the passage of California's proposition 19.

Once the US troops are pulled out of Afghanistan where 99% of the entire world's Heroin is produced, the Taliban will entirely eradicate the Opium poppy fields across Afghanistan AS THEY DID before preventing the Karzai clan from exporting that Heroin to the Chinese Triad's (world's largest and oldest criminal syndicate).

The Chinese Triad's are the exclusive suppliers of Heroin to the Mexican Drug Cartel's who smuggle that Heroin into America.

Pulling America out of Afghanistan would gut Hundreds of Billions of dollars in yearly revenue to the world's largest criminal syndicates.

Yes on measure 19, and pulling American troops out of Afghanistan removes 2/3 of the entire illegal drug funding to the world's largest criminal syndicates from Marijuana, Heroin and Cocaine. That is hands down a WIN-WIN.

Smith in Oregon   October 8th, 2010 7:16 pm ET

Nearly all of the anti-Marijuana funding into the pockets of the Republican lawmakers comes from huge beer brewing corporations who view Marijuana as their main competition. It has nothing to do with health and safety, alcohol is far more toxic and more dangerous for America's drivers than Marijuana could and ever be.

Just as happened during America's failed war on Alcohol, organized criminal syndicates became enormously wealthy adding a huge number of law enforcement employees to their payrolls, the same is taking place with the Mexican Drug cartel's adding a very large number of border agents, sheriff's, police, fbi and dea agents to their payrolls which greatly places all American's in much greater risk of death and violence as a result.

American's need to stop the mindless Republican flow of hundreds of millions of America's dollars to China, Cambodia and Vietnam for Hemp fabric, Hemp clothing and Hemp paper.

Grow Hemp here on America's millions of clear-cut acres of currently useless federal and state land employing ten's of thousands of American's in the process. Hemp cultivation and hemp textiles could and would help lift America out of the jobless recession sinking many millions of American's across the entire nation.

Cotton which America exclusively depends on for it's clothing and fabric's is extremely fresh water wasteful, requiring huge amounts of fresh water which in the near future cities and farming community's will be hard pressed to even acquire. Hemp requires far less water and produces far stronger cloth and clothing from it's fibers. The original Levi's 501's were made with Hemp Cloth.

My question is for Yoko Ono...Do you think that the person who shot your dearest husband will ever get out of jail? Does anyone believe in "Capital Punishment"?

If John was alive today, would he have continued making music and doing concerts with Paul & Ringo?

John Lennon was a great person and full of romance, all he was give peace a chance! May God watch over you always John! You are deeply missed by all your fans!

Bobbie   October 8th, 2010 8:55 pm ET

Sorry, my computer went haywire... My question is except for Oko who was with John when he died, Where were each of you& what were you doing and how did you find out?
My Best to all of you But a BIG HI To you two RINGO & PAUL since I couldn't say it in person...

mary   October 8th, 2010 9:19 pm ET

william p.   October 8th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

John lennon in my opinion is one of the greatest artist of all time. he will be missed by all
god bless...

nina1fox   October 8th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

The Beatles brought to the World, the age of rock-n-roll groups. They started a new age in music! There are so many songs I loved, I could not even try to give you just one.

Karen   October 8th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

Dear Larry,
Ask Paul & Ringo if they would play music of John Lennons with Johns sons and Georges son in honor of John Lennons B-Day?
I believe this would be a beautiful tribute to John Lennnon.
Thank you & I'm sorry your leaving
Peace&Love Karen

nina1fox   October 8th, 2010 9:57 pm ET

I completely agree with Paul McCartney that the Beatles message was all about "Love" What a wonderful group.

I certainly miss John Lennon as he was not only gifted; he was also a visionary musician!

Brian   October 8th, 2010 9:57 pm ET

My Question to Paul and Ringo, is that if both John and George were both still alive today, Would there be a reunion concert?

Camilla   October 8th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

I assume the remaining Beatles know that a tradition at Harvard Yard every spring was that someone would blast "Here Comes the Sun" from a window onto Harvard Yard the first warm day of spring. As a freshman from California, and longing for the warmth, I remember turning, stunned, towards that wonderful song and thinking life would be OK after all. I was a lonely 17-year-old at the time. The Beatles have provided joy throughout my life. Thanks!

Dave   October 8th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

It's impossible to pick just one Beatles song as the best. They were so good and constantly changing their music. I think their best album was probably Revolver. But I loved all their albums.

Laura   October 8th, 2010 10:05 pm ET

I just want to say to Paul and Ringo, tha the beatles were and are the bets band from all the times!!!!
God bless you!!!

Eddie Ramirez   October 8th, 2010 11:02 pm ET

The Beatles are the greatest Band ever! My father passed away on December 18, 2010 and right after John was viciously murdered, he told me that it was such a shame that he was such a good man, a man of peace! I couldn't believe my ears because my dad used to make fun of me haveing long hair and a beard! The happiest I ever saw my father was when I had to cut my hair real short and shave my beard and mustache! I went from being a Hipppy to being a Cop! I did get to meet May Pang who was John's secretary twice around January 1973 as I wanted to send a tape of my rock band to Apple Records. She asked me if I wanted to meet John (on both occasions that I went) but unfortunetly he said he did not want to see anyone. The office had pictures on the wall from "A Hard Days Night" I did suggest to May Pang to tell John to take his son to Disney in California and apparently he took my advise as I eventually found out that he did take him! A true story when I was a Police Officer working in Penn Station NY a man approached me and he resembled a coworker named Frank Sanucci and as we spoke he told me that he was staying at the Penta Hotel across Penn Station which they had recently changed their name I think it was originally named the Hilton but I am not sure as it was so long ago. Well anyway this guy started talking crazy saying he wanted to shoot John Lennon and wanted to shoot Elvis (who was already long deceased)/ Suddenly 2 other officers approached us and asked my why was I talking to this guy that they had just ejected him from the station, they then proceeded to grab the guy and escort him out of the station, and I was ordered to remain on my post. I subsequently had an arrest and went to the Midtown South Precient and spoke to the desk Sergeant about this and was told that John was in Florda, and that there was no need to report this. I did also speak to an ADA but he replied nothing could be done because I was not 100 percent sure that this was Mark Chapman. Once around January 1973 while playing on the roof level near the pool, at the ASCAP Building located opposite Lincoln Center we were performing "My Sweet Lord" and I was told that George Harrison who happend to be in the building came up to see what was going on! I was so annoyed because he left before I could speak to him and all I saw was the back of his head! I was lucky enough to Paul + Linda (Wings) perform at the Meadow Lands it was such a great concert! Good luck Larry my advise to you is not to fully retire, but rather do weekly specials! Please give my Love to Paul, Ringo, Yoko and Olivia and I want them to know how much they are appreciated and may God Bless them and Protect Them! Sincerely Yours, Eddie A. Ramirez

i was only 15 when the Beatles broke up and the only regret is that i never went to any of there concerts the greatest band ever

Cindy   October 9th, 2010 12:46 am ET

Hi Larry,
loved the show remembering John Lennon, but itwould have been nice if you would have brought Julian on as well. He seems
to be forgotten when these shows air.

Mark Lasalle   October 9th, 2010 12:50 am ET

Heh thanks Larry; You're a Collosal for bringing us back the Beatles. Lot's of things coming together made the Beatles. There is the essence of the group, but no doubt without Ringo it would have been different; Heh guys, show us the love that you showed us from the begining gents.
All of us wanted to be part of it. Paul needs to recognize Ringo. Ringo needs to realize, he was priveileged to be part of them. John was the first; and George played a guitar that went little recognized ... till it weeped of course and man.... And let's not forget Brian Epstein, his organizationation skill (the suits, etc.); and also what made the sound what it became... the recording studio, without which would have been simple music without which ... Heh Beatles, live on!

Manideepa Patnaik   October 9th, 2010 2:32 am ET

I like music although I never got into it. I have heard them occasionally and I have loved them. I am curious to know who sang the number – "Hey, hey, Mama! Look at me. I wanna take you to Paradise. " I had loved it much before my marriage and now as I have become desperate to get my son's custody and trying very hard to take him out of criminal hostage of his father- I miss that song a lot. I know Beatles are great guys. Few days back I heard all the songs sung by Michael Jackson and since then I have been telling myself- "Oh, God! How could I miss this guy when he was alive!" Incidentally my son got forced to be separated from me and came under pressure and torture after he brought MJ and Beatles and all to my notice through an MP3 player I had brought for him. He had downloaded them on his own from my laptop internet. The poor kid. He is just 12 and he has been through hell since he has been 5 or 6 because he brings such great people to my notice. There is no police, no law, no human rights people - no one who would rescue this noble boy. I am so tired. Manideepa

Bernie   October 9th, 2010 5:40 am ET

Larry, When you went to a commercial, you said something like, "When we come back, we'll have all four," (of the Beatles) & I thought that if anyone could do that, Larry King could.
Thanks for the program.

chakameh   October 9th, 2010 6:17 am ET

" I've just seen a Face" is my favorit BEATLES song...

Vicky   October 9th, 2010 2:38 pm ET

The Beatles had beautiful music and lyrics, therefore popular, however their behavior was radical in which, I believe influenced radicals point of views during the 60s..

colleen mary barry   October 9th, 2010 3:27 pm ET

hey jude is the best

Martha Devlin   October 9th, 2010 3:36 pm ET

The show was just wonderful and made me hope that that version of Cirque will travel because I think it looks fantastic. Also, hearing the music again makes me want to go out and buy more so that I can listen at will. Thank you so much for putting on that show.

Hannah K   October 10th, 2010 10:54 am ET

PLEASE rerun this show! Unfortunately I missed the original program and I'm so sorry to have missed out on this fabulous memorial to John Lennon. What a difference these gentlemen made on the music world.

KIm   October 10th, 2010 2:32 pm ET

"Imagine"......Comprehensive development guidance models designed to maximize School Bully Prevention and school counseling services.The Beatles play on a roof top at a Public Library to increase awareness ? No cyber bullying allowed and go read a book.Budget cuts hampering counselors from spending time with students. "Mony,Mony."

Dana   October 10th, 2010 10:22 pm ET

The contributions that the Beatles made to the music industry are insurmountable–there will NEVER be another rock group whose accomplishments will surpass those of the four lads from Liverpool. I was born in 1966 and feel somewhat deprived because I missed the live version of the Beatles performing on the Ed Sullivan show and honestly didn't grow up listening to their music, though I do recall listening to some of their solo music on the radio during the 1970's/1980's. I am proud to admit that I am addicted to the Beatles. They were way ahead of their time. I love them all for their uniqueness, talent, and for giving my generation, previous generations, and future generations the best music ever!!!

Elia & Dvid McPhail   October 12th, 2010 6:47 pm ET

Message from Eliah the prophet. You know already that in Daniel were encoded the dates of the time of the end that has started at the period of Rabin former Prime Minister of Israel when there's thrice mention of the phrase "till the time of the end"; there are also the mention of the numbers: in chp. 12:11 there's given the number:1290. It's the sum of the numerical values of the words: the Temple [866]+Messiah son of David[424]=1290; in the chp.12:12 the number: 1335. It's the sum of the numerical values of the names of the former israeli leaders: Ariel Sharon[798]+Moshe Katzav[537]=1335, so nowadays is the time of the end. Why these dates are incoded in Daniel? It's because in Hebrew the Language of creation letters have the power, the phrases & letters combinations reveal us hidden things, for example person's name reveal us his nature. In the name Daniel there are words judge & judgment that's why Daniel reveals us the Judgment Day time.The name Glenn Beck contains the word nest: ken in Hebrew, so his family very important to him. Anderson Cooper for example can be a good warrior, he doesn't panic in tough situations, his tongue is sharp, sometimes can be poisonous, he's experienced many miracles since God has given him the chance to choose the wright way: in his name there are numerical values of the words shield & God & Cooper's numerical value is David son of Jesse, but he is not yet quiet, since he is not on the wright way. Larry King has in his name, like Glenn Beck the word ken that is nest, that's why his family is very important to him, but in his name is also the word empty, reik in Hebrew, that's why he is not always quiet, but he is also can be like lion: arie in Hebrew. Everyone who has letter P in their name like power & are stubborn persons, like A.Cooper, Putin, Napoleon & others.There are innumerable opportunities in this knowledge.

I just want to add a correction to a typo on my comment made on October 8 2010. My father passed away on December 18, 1980 I accidentally typed 2010!

Andrew Krauth   December 9th, 2010 1:11 pm ET

I was at the Salt Lake City Concert Paul played what he said was his 200th show with his band and I must say it was the best thing I had ever been to. The energy and love came out of those speakers and could be felt for miles away from the stadium. I want to know ( hypothetically) If John had lived.?. does Paul think they would have eventually collaborated heading through the 80's-90's? I like to think that they still had enough love for each other that they would have..; )
