    Sorry, I think that’s crap. We’re talking about romantic love here, right? That sounds more like a recipe for going to jail.

  2. i think ms. jong is talking about intimacy.

    friendship, the deep kind … with or without sex/domestic partnership.

    valuable relationships involve risk … allowing yourself to be vulnerable, revealing all your parts — even the ugly ones. being honest with yourself and then letting someone else see it. it’s not easy.

    Erica Jong also said this:

    “If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me. And it’s not a coincidence that President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets.”

    I can’t and won’t take her seriously.

  4. oh john, you are so much like my family.

    i don’t know or care about erica jong. i quoted words i liked … not caring who said them … because they resonated with me.

    but alas, it’s a free country and your spirited responses are welcome and appreciated!

    So, Fear of Flying wasn’t really about flying?

    I was just being an old crank, col. I get into that mood sometimes and nothing makes me happy. Thanks for putting up with me (that goes for you too, SD).
