where are my little chickies?  i miss them.  remember this?

DixieChicks_ShutUpAndSing_Canada

by the way- this is the Canadian movie poster, the U.S. one has the women draped in cloth.  huge stupid sigh.  i remember when i saw this movie how struck i was by the utter ignorance and blatant sexism that was expressed loudly about these women and specifically natalie’s comment about president bush.  just thinking about that time in my nation’s history makes me almost weepy.  my chest gets tight with the thought of fear based politics.  i really felt like the dixie chicks handled the whole situation with grace.  the documentary (if you haven’t seen it, you really must put it in your queue) was moving and demonstrated how sometimes we have to go through great personal turmoil and even pain to receive more knowledge and love in our lives.  here’s one to the dixie chicks, wherever you are.  you are missed. and thanks for not forgetting about gays rights when you were in the midst of your own personal fight for freedom.
