No rock and war fun

We were interested to read Anthony Easton's NYLPM piece about the Dixie Chick's new song; a heart-mushing tale of a young wife turned young widow by the death of her football hero husband in a pointless foreign war.

Is this the same Dixie Chicks who turned up yesterday to do the National Anthem at the Superbowl, watched by dozens and dozens of combat ready troops while fireworks recreated the raid over Baghdad? Interesting opening ceremony - only a few tanks short of a Soviet era May Day parade. And what was Celine Dion doing trilling about America? Um, when you say "your land", don't you mean "the country next door"?
