EVERY time you think television has sunk to new lows in its rush to create a kind of tabloid hell, you have to think again. The latest example is the appearance last month of Mark David Chapman, who, after 12 years, managed to parlay his assassination of John Lennon into prime-time appearances with Barbara Walters and Larry King.For those who have forgotten, Chapman, who is serving 20 years to life at Attica, murdered the ex-Beatle on Dec. 8, 1980. After flying from his native Hawaii to stalk Lennon, Chapman spent the day of the murder with a crowd of well-wishers who had gathered outside Lennon's Manhattan apartment.

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."

You may say John Lennon was a dreamer. But he was not the only one.Among those moved by "Imagine," the songwriter's paean to "a brotherhood of man," were Terry and Linda Bosley of Ocean City. With the tidy sum that Mr. Bosley had earned as a record-breaking real estate salesman, they bought a 41-foot sailing yacht, named it Imagine, and set out with their three preteen children in search of freedom, adventure, new lands, pure waters and "above us only sky."Twenty years after the song caught their fancy and their boat got its name, the Bosleys are back home in Maryland.

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.
