Subject: RE: BS: Do Americans think it's worth it ?
yes well, I'm with the Dixie Chicks on this one. Incidentally, Fox news and various other similar outlets are saying that the Dixie Chicks are trying to"fix" the November elections by permiting a documentary about their previous run-in with the Bushites to be released worldwide. it's called Shut Up & Sing which is what Toby Keith told them to do back when.

Mind you, I'm midly annoyed at the DC's video for "I'm not ready to make nice" which features very nasty looking men in black dressed as Catholic Monsignors. These "Churchmen" torture Natalie Maines along with some wird looking doctor types. It's not as if the Catholic Church told them to shut up. What's even more amusing is that the video is set in a fictional world that looks like the Victorian Era Western USA - not a place heavily populated by Roman Catholic Monsignors hellbent on censoring women-singers!

I hate ever agreeing with William Donahue (Sp?) that RC blowhard, but sometimes i think he's right when he says "Anti-Catholicism is the last acceptible prejudice in America" And he means publically, not privately. I know he dodn't coin that phrase but he repeates it whenever he can.

(Dave'wife was raised a Catholic in NYC, FYI. I am not currently practising but I suppose I could say I am culturally still as IRC as they come)
