Even John Lennon Grew Up

I'm sure this is a paraphrase, but I've heard it said that

  • If you're 20 and not a liberal, you have no heart.
  • If you're 40 and not a conservative, you have no brain.
Today we learn, from his last personal assistant, that even John Lennon grew up. And once he grew up, many of the thoughtless positions of his younger days embarrassed him.

It's clear it took a lot of folks a lot longer to grow up in the 1950s and 1960s than was once the case, and that seems to be the case even more in today's society. But if even someone with as much invested in the liberal mindset as John Lennon can eventually grow up, maybe there's at least a little hope for some of our liberal politicians.
