Music and movies have a way of casting spells on us. They can set us dreaming like little else. They draw from us the deepest and most celestial yearnings. This is a musical dream.

That the U.S. government is a terrorist state has been shown over and over again. The case of Bert Sacks is an exemplary one in that it shows how one person can change others and prove by its own laws that the U.S. government considers itself above the the law and can kill and maim with impunity while calling others terrorists.

In today's computer-driven world, one thing that people have been told for decades is to be vigilant that their computers do not become infected with viruses.

Dylan, the spellbinder, has, through his public personae, hypnotized his followers with his tantalizing and wonderful music. "Not I, not I, but the wind that blows through me," wrote D.H. Lawrence in his poem, "Song of a Man Who Has Come Through." This sounds like Dylan's artistic credo.

Maybe he was asking the wrong question. He felt in a flash that he knew the answer but couldn't say what the true question was. But it didn't seem to matter now. He felt as he walked ahead he was heading back to find his future in the present.

This year, the anniversary of the murder of the Christian prophet and martyr, Martin Luther King, Jr., falls on Easter Sunday, April 4, which gives rise to doubly deeper thoughts that cross religious boundaries... for very few Americans are aware of the truth behind the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the United States' celebrated civil rights icon.

There are profound reasons why birds and bread have held such important places in people's spiritual lives and imaginations for thousands of years. They symbolize our human solidarity in the breaking of the bread and our need for freedom in the winged beauty and song of birds in flight.

To denounce censorship, as they have done, is admirable. But now Greenwald, Taibbi, and Hedges need go up to the forbidden gate with the sign that says - "This far and no further" - and jump over it. That's where the true stories lie. That's when they'll see the worms squirm.

The book by Greg Poulgrain that I am about to review is extraordinary by any measure. The story he tells is one you will read nowhere else, especially in the way he links the assassination of President Kennedy to former CIA Director Allen Dulles and the engineering by the latter of one of the 20th century's most terrible mass murders.

The need to believe in today's American system of government with two alternating parties runs very deep. Propagandists use the need to believe to control people. Even when every new administration is the counterpart of the other, so many people keep their faith in the game. It is a civil religion and the leaders are demi-gods for the faithful.
