ATLANTA - The dream of many of those who live in Bowen Homes is someday to get out of the notorious housing project. Jamal Lewis, on the other hand, never seemed able to stay away. Although Lewis grew up in a stable middle-class neighborhood about five miles from Bowen Homes, a series of squat, two-story, yellow structures built in 1961, his father, John, said yesterday that as a teen-ager, his son beat a constant path to the project. And there, his father said, Jamal formed relationships that might threaten the football superstar just when possibilities for him seemed limitless.

WHO AMONG US did not feel a little shiver of mean delight last week at the news that Sen. Edward M. Kennedy had not once but five times been told he could not board a commercial plane? The image of a genuine Washington pooh-bah falling afoul of the government's inane security system was one to savor. But now that we've had the advantage of a period of sober reflection, we're inclined to ponder: Is this idiotic, or what? The government keeps lists of suspected terrorists who aren't allowed to fly, and leaves it up to the airlines to enforce it. It's not at all clear how easy it is to get on one of these lists, but it's all too obvious that it's virtually impossible to get off one. Apparently the people who run US Airways had a no-fly list that included a certain "Kennedy," so that meant that the senior senator from Massachusetts -- incidentally the most famous member of the world's greatest deliberative body -- was kept off the plane by the airline's by-the-book gate agents until superiors were called upon to waive him aboard.
