If you haven't read the Dixie Chicks letter to fans, you should
It's hilarious! (think this was posted earlier, but it must have dropped fast ...)

Dixie Chicks resume controversial stance

<snip>

Dear Reader:

I am taking the time out of my very busy rock and roll life to write you this letter. As I am sure you can understand, being me is a full time job. I can't just drop everything every three days because someone needs a quote or statement about a quote or statement we may or may not have said. It's just draining me of time and effort I need to put toward other things.

For one, I as a taxpayer have to get busy earning money to help pay off the latest $87 billion addition to the national debt!

Also, I have a huge list of phone calls to return. I'll list a few just so you get the idea.

Message 1: Saddam Hussein called and wants to know where his weapons of mass destruction are. Listen Saddam, I already told you, I don't know. You're going to have to call the White House on that one.

3. Dixie Chicks rock

Think about it. They are one of the few people in entainment, industry, or government who just do what is right. We all see every day just too many citizens and politicians advancing their own agendas, skimming $$ in one business scheme or another, promoting government policies that put more $$ in their pockets, cowering in fear of KKKarl Rove and the BFEE, voting for bush because they like their tax cuts (oh, and all the rest isn't so bad...), or just not giving a damn.

And then you have the Dixie Chicks.

Here's the link to the same letter, but on their web site (the one in the original post is from an article).

5. My God, that's great!
It's even better than the one The Specious Report published in their name (http://www.thespeciousreport.com/2003_dixiechicks.html ) and it's real, too!
