A Change for the Worse

The bell ringers of Liverpool Cathedral, instead of ringing the changes Saturday, took a walk on the wild side, ringing instead the 1971 ditty by the late multimillionaire Beatle John Lennon: "Imagine."
Hundreds of people gathered outside the cathedral to hear the tune, which Lennon, who was murdered in New York in 1980, described as ‘anti-religious, anti-conventional and anti-capitalistic’.

A cathedral spokesman said: ‘We feel this performance has inspired many people to think about their relationship with God in their lives. From what we have heard, it’s been received really well. It sounded absolutely fantastic.’
Well, that's just ducky. I'll bet those hundreds of people gathered outside the cathedral Saturday outnumbered by, oh let's say hundreds, those gathered inside the cathedral Sunday.
