SAYS HE'LL SPEND THE CASH ON CONFEDERATE FLAGS

Ted Nugent has won a huge-ish payout from concert organisers who kicked him off the 2003 Muskegon Summer Celebration after he used a "racist term". Nugent didn't deny using the phrase, but claimed he was merely repeating something a black musician had said about him as a compliment; the court found in his favour and awarded him USD100,000 for loss of earnings. Coyly, the BBC report doesn't say what the word was, but I guess we can be sure it wasn't 'redneck'.
