It's a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they'd write me a letter
Sayin' that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over
-- "Not Ready to Make Nice," the Dixie Chicks, 2006.
How many of the bozos who burned the Dixie Chicks CDs have said far worse about our current "war president," (sigh), Barack Obama. The great thing about Natalie Maines and Co.? They stood their ground. And they didn't back down.
