I didn\'t actually watch the Grammy\'s, but was pleased to hear that the Dixie Chicks won big, not least because I not only enjoy their music and style, but also because I saw their movie last fall. Kudos to them for surviving a concerted effort to put them out of business, all because of a chance remark that was taken out of all proportion by a paranoid regime and its sycophants.

While I\'m not a big fan of award shows, it is nice to see recognition going to good performers. Particularly since the mainstream types in their own genre chose to ignore them.

Quite a good article here:

Anyway, I\'m so sick of all the bad news the papers publish that it\'s nice to see something good for a change.  ::)
