I was proud to be a Texan when the Dixie Chicks exercised their brains and free speech rights way back when, so I was delighted to see them vindicated at the Grammy Awards. I’m also a passionate fan of their music and often listen to it when I write. About the time they insulted the Emperor’s clothes, there was a website that included a list of books they recommended. The Watch was ever so briefly on that list. It wasn’t exactly the best time to come out with a novel whose sympathetic protagonist is a famous anarchist.
How times change. If you don’t believe me, check out The Worldometer.
Good to see the Dixie Chicks get rewarded for all they’ve had to go through!
Indeed. Here’s hoping all those jokers who burned their CDs get their reward too.
