Dixie Chicks Resurface…Kinda, Sorta…Well, Just Barely

Hard to believe, but in recent years I had forgotten all about the big Dixie Chicks controversy back in 2003. But a couple of recent articles by writer Phyllis Stark--one about Chicks music finding its way back onto the country airwaves, the other about programmers still quite wary of playing it--stirred some memories and opened a line of thinking.

Weiner, Schwarzenegger and Company Taking a Blowtorch to Trust

I guess it's a sense of entitlement and a headrush of power that makes the politicians about which we've heard far too much recently feel so invincible that they can just about get away with anything. The big and obvious problem is, however, that Americans trusted these people enough to put them into office. So when one scandal after another unfolds--and they are doing so on top each other, these days--we all have to wonder, "Who's next?"

Trump Not Adding White House to Real Estate Empire

I don't like to talk politics on these pages, but I think this news supercedes any political philosophies just because of its noteworthiness. Donald Trump, as you may know, has decided he will not run for president. And this will come as very good news to--among others--fans of Celebrity Apprentice, a show he could not continue if he ran.

Bristol Palin Admits Fresh New Looked Enhanced

Ah-ha! I knew she looked different but I thought she was merely maturing. Wrong. Amid reports that she had plastic surgery, Bristol Palin sat down with Us Magazine to clear up any lingering rumors about her fresh new look.

In the new issue on stands Wednesday, the 20-year-old reality TV star, who turned heads at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in April, revealed, "I had corrective jaw surgery ... Yes, It improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons ... so my jaw and teeth could properly realign ... I don't obsess over my face."

Osama Bin Laden Killed

 

For the last ten years, country radio stations have been playing the heck out of Darryl Worley's song Have You Forgotten? As a matter of fact, at our most recent WBKR Night at the Grand Old Opry, Darryl sang that song to a raucous standing ovation.  The reason that particular song still resonates so profoundly is that no one in the U.S. has forgotten the morning of September 11th, 2001, when, according to Toby Keith's Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue, "a mighty sucker punch came flying in from somewhere in the back!"   It was that day that "The Statue of Liberty started shaking her fist" and now, ten years later, "Mother Freedom" is "ringing her bell."  A major chapter in the War Against Terror is closed.  Osama Bin Laden is dead.
