Linda Ronstadt booted out of casino for dedicating song to M Moore

(snip)

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Singer Linda Ronstadt (news) was thrown out of the Aladdin casino in Las Vegas on the weekend after dedicating a song to liberal film maker Michael Moore and his movie "Fahrenheit 9/11," a casino spokeswoman said on Monday.



Ronstadt, who had been hired for a one-show engagement Saturday night at the Las Vegas Strip casino, dedicated a performance of "Desperado" to Moore and his controversial documentary, which criticizes President Bush (news - web sites) and the U.S.-led war in Iraq


Wow.I guess singers arent allowed to sing to who they want anymore.

2. Brilliant..
Linda dedicates a song to Moore, neo-cons go nuts and tear the place up and the hotel kicks her out. Gee if this were "opposite day" that would make total sense to me...

4. Marching orders , people
Only one thing to do! Call, e-mail, snail mail, stop in at the Aladdin and tell them that you will NEVER spend one fucking cent in thier establishment again! And you will tell all friends and relatives to do the same. Probably won't make much of an impact but we have to start doing what we have to do! No matter what! Can someone list all contacts to the Aladdin? I have to go upstairs for dinner but will bookmark and return. Someone keep this kicked while I'm away, please.

7. Give us the link and I will
Angry letters threatening boycotts can be quite effective.
