What is it with Yoko Ono? I have no idea even where to go with this, except to say

Yea, John had a choice, stay with Cynthia, or go out and sleep with what is probably one of the most unattractive people on the planet. Seriously.... I DO NOT GET IT. Do You?

John was one of the most brilliant song writers of all time. He was an awesome vocalist and peace advocate. This is a guy who I would call a pretty intelligent dude. But then... There's the Yoko thing? I'm not losing sleep over it, but, what the hell? Apparently 'All You Need is Love?'  Maybe some thicker glasses would have helped, John?

And what's with the Plastic Ono Band? Yea I know that they had Eric Clapton and other very talented people in the group. But Yoko wasn't one of them. Have you ever heard this women sing? It sounds like a wounded water buffalo being eaten by a pack of hungry hyenas. Of course, it's just my opinion, but it's the only one that matters to me. Do you care to comment?
