Shut Up & Sing

"Freedom of speech is fine
as long as you don't do it in public."

Watched the Dixie Chicks' documentary "Shut Up & Sing" on Sunday night ... loved it, loved it, LOVED IT! Great music, strong women and a fascinating slice of life-in-these-United-States under the current regime where, as a tag line from the film puts it, "freedom of speech is fine as long as you don't do it in public."

If you've forgotten how great their hit single -- "Not Ready to Make Nice" -- is click here for the music video. As I wrote in February ... "If indeed it's "too late to make it right" with those in the Anglican Communion who insist we must sell out our vision for the Kingdom in order to be at the table with them then maybe it's time to crank up the music and sing along: [link to lyrics here]
I'm not ready to make nice
I'm not ready to back down ...
Because the Kingdom calls -- and we truly do not have time to continue to go round and round and round.

Thank you, Ma'am; I was so impressed with the Chicks when "Not Ready to Make Nice" came out, I bought the CD and *Fly*, the one with "Goodbye Earl": great song but the Video was a little dated, if campy for the "Who's that?" game. Gotta see this movie now somehow: thanks, too, fer the headsup.
