I saw "Shut Up And Sing", the Dixie Chicks movie last night in Nashville. It's a good documentary, and great fun. They're as well out of country music it seems to me. It's the political season in the states, and hard to see the coming election being anything other than a train wreck seeing as an electronic vote isn't worth the paper it's written on, to paraphrase Louis B Mayer on the subject of verbal contracts. Meanwhile I'm heading out to Atlanta, Savannah and Dataw Island for the next few days, and then down to the beloved and betrayed City of New Orleans.
