It may be only pop psychology. But nobody can make it snap and crackle like Barbara Walters & Company.Walters interviews Mark David Chapman on ABC's "20/20" at 10 tonight, four days before the 12th anniversary of Chapman's assassination of singer and former Beatle John Lennon. The result is a look into the mind of an assassin that's impossible to turn away from.As usual, Walters and her producers waste no time in getting to the good stuff."Why did you kill John Lennon?" she asks right off the bat."

It's described as a "Two-Fisted Art Attack."Denny Dent, the world's only "rock 'n' roll painter," will join hundreds of artists who will take over the streets of Annapolis Thursday in the annual art coup known as First Night Annapolis.His unique craft has earned him a place in "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" and propelled him to performances around the world.Taking center stage, he clenches three paint brushes in each hand and begins his assault on blank canvas. Bopping and weaving to the rhythms of a favorite musician, the tall, bearded painter beats their image out of the surface with fierce strokes, simultaneously bellowing out his creed: "It's not important what you do!

More than just one of the most popular musicians and songwriters of the 20th century, John Lennon was a talented and respected artist. The former Beatle, who attended the Liverpool Art Institute for three years, loved art and continued to draw throughout his lifetime. Fans of Lennon can take a glimpse into his artistic soul at the exhibit The Artwork of John Lennon: In My Life, on display Friday, Saturday and June 25 at a warehouse in Alexandria, Va. Lennon's widow Yoko Ono presents the touring exhibit, which features more than 100 original drawings, hand-signed pieces and limited-edition prints of works created between 1968 and 1980.

Think of John Lennon, and a flood of images comes to mind: Beatle John, standing on stage with a sly smile or dropping sly non sequiturs at an airport press conference; Hippie John,in long hair and granny glasses; Anti-War John, holed up in bed with Yoko Ono and several dozen members of the press, singing "Give Peace a Chance"; House-Husband John, baking bread and playing with his infant son, Sean.Still, the one image that refuses to materialize is that of John Lennon at 50.Granted, it's not something any of us will ever see. Mark David Chapman saw to that, one cold December night 10 years ago in the shadows outside New York's Dakota Apartments.

Does the name Linda Greenwood ring a bell? How about David Burnell or Joshua Brown? No? Well, how about John Lennon?Ahh. Him you've heard of. Caught four slugs from a .38 10 years ago and died. There was quite a to-do at the time, as I recall.There were candle-lighting ceremonies in which people stood and bowed their heads for 10 minutes of silence. And there were lots of stories. Lots and lots of stories about the Beatle who got killed.Linda Greenwood and those other people I mentioned were gunned down the same day John Lennon was. But there was no to-do over them.

TO: Mark David Chapman. From: Someone whose favorite Beatle was John Lennon, thank you very much. Subject: Your pending parole board hearing. I read where you said you might have murdered John Lennon to punish your father. You said your father never told you he loved you. "Perhaps I was getting him back, killing John Lennon," you told a British tabloid. Bravo! This is Beatles music to my ears. Ever since you gunned down Lennon 20 years ago, I have been waiting for a rational explanation.
