                                                  politics aside, this story is wacky and bizarre.  i was never a Pearl Jam fan, but i think this blows the Dixie Chicks thing away.

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

                                                   Now I like Pearl Jam but polotics is a dangerouse area to play in if you want to keep the fans happy .
   As for the Dixie chicks . What thing? unsure.gif  I'm not a big fan . biggrin.gif

                                                  well, the singer said something about being embarrassed that Bush was from Texas during a concert in the UK(i think?).  anyways, it made the news and they are basically blackballed.  no more Dixie Chicks on the radio, people boycotting them, etc.

                                                   It actually made the news over here that all the anti Bush / anti war songs have been banned from American radio .

                                                  They havenít been banned anywhere in America, but many places donít play them due to the demands of the public. The public is so overwhelmingly in support of Bush and the war, that many listeners will not listen to stations that play songs like that. So it's sort of a ban by public demand smile.gif

                                                  yes, they have been blackballed by the public- not the government.
