When John Lennon sings, "Oh, my love/For the first time in my life/My eyes are wide open" these songs have an intimacy for me that's not just between people, I realize now, not just sexual intimacy. A spiritual intimacy.


Communication leads to community that is, to understanding, intimacy, and the mutual valuing that was previously lacking.

One of the nastiest aspects of the 'no-fly list' and believe it or not, its authors are proud of this part is that you can't find out whether you're on it until you've paid for your ticket and are standing in line to get your boarding pass. Denied the service that you paid for, to my knowledge there is no way to get your money back. Nor is there any way to find out why you're on the list, or how you can get off. It is known that civil rights advocates of various kinds have been placed on the list, apparently because they're civil rights advocates.
