And one more...

John Lennon has agreed to be in a laptop commercial! Well, not exactly. It's a charitable public service announcement. And he hasn't exactly "agreed". A campaign launched Thursday encourages Americans to support a campaign to deliver solar-powered laptops to the poor children of the world. The ad says: "Imagine every child no matter where in the world they were could access a universe of knowledge. They would have a chance to learn, to dream, to achieve anything they want. I tried to do it through my music, but now you can do it in a very different way. You can give a child a laptop and more than imagine, you can change the world." If they were going to put words in Lennon's mouth, I would hope they would be more creative than using the word "imagine" like that. But then, I am no ad exec.
