DAVE MATTHEWS ATTEMPT A BLAIR APOLOGY: Following from the incident where the Dave Matthews Band's shit got dumped on a bunch of people enjoying a pleasant boat ride the Band are attempting to make things right while simultaneously refusing to accept any responsiblity for the driver of their coach, in their employ, opening the sluice gates and dumping the shit across the river. Despite it not being their fault, they've sacked the driver, donated fifty grad to local parks and a river group and attempted to make contact with affected passengers. It's not persuaded the Attorney General that it's time to put all this business behind them:

Melissa Merz, a spokeswoman for the attorney general's office, said the band's latest action would not affect ongoing settlement talks.

"We certainly, along with all Illinoisans, appreciate the gesture of goodwill, but legal negotiations are based on evidence and legal procedures and we have not yet reached a resolution in this case," Merz said.
