Yes, America does

Spin It asks if America owes the Dixie Chicks an apology? I say "Hell, yes!"


The documentary about the Chicks, titled Shut Up and Sing, opens this weekend in New York and Los Angeles. (Why the hell not Austin, BTW? Fans here would have lined up for tickets around the block!) Ironically NBC won't run ads for the movie. I don't know if that makes them bigger cowards or jerks - but it amounts to a ton of free publicity and a complete affirmation of the movie's, and Spin It's, point: America owes the Dixie Chicks an apology.

Texas owes them an apology, not "America". Their images where shown during the last UT home game and the entire stadium booed. The rest of America has no beef with the Dixie Chicks.

Every radio station that stopped playing their music, every person who voiced a desire to burn their CD's, who canceled their concert tickets...they all owe these ladies an apology.
