I'm not sure how famous she was in Japan...infamous perhaps to a slight degree for being non conformist. I don't know how "famous"  her aristocratic heritage really made her to the common sector of Japan.  She was an established performance artist before she met Lennon. I don't know if we would have heard about her too much, but in the artist community she was beginning to become known.  I have a lot of mixed feelings about Yoko. I also don't buy for a second her claim that she had never heard of the Beatles before she met John.  I do believe her peace activism is as sincere as anyone else's .  She turned 85 this week.

Well one thing is for sure. She could sing like a mockingbird.




A Mockingbird that was in a cats mouth Laughing

Yep.


I heard worse. She really was ahead of her time.

DOJ Alumni Statement Regarding Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller, and the Rule of Law

We, the undersigned, are proud alumni of the United States Department of Justice. We served this institution out of a commitment to the founding American principles that our democratic republic depends upon the rule of law, that the law must be applied equally, and that no one is above the law. Many of us served with Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein. Those of us who served with these men know them to be dedicated public servants committed to these principles. All of us served with thousands of their peers at the Department, who also swear an oath to serve, defend, and protect the United States, the Constitution and the American people. We know that there are thousands of public servants at the Department today who serve these principles and all of us.

We are therefore deeply disturbed by the attacks that have been levied against the good men and women of the Department. Not only is it an insult to their public service, but any attempt to corrupt or undermine the even-handed application of the rule of law threatens the foundation of our Republic. We know the people who serve at the Department will bravely weather these attacks and continue to uphold their oaths by doing only what the law dictates. But it is up to the rest of us, and especially our elected representatives, to come to their defense and oppose any attempt by the President or others to improperly interfere in the Department’s work, including by firing either Mr. Mueller, Mr. Rosenstein or other Department leadership or officials for the purpose of interfering in their investigations. Should the President take such a step, we call on Congress to swiftly and forcefully respond to protect the founding principles of our Republic and the rule of law.
