family, friends, politics, music and technology... that's what it's all about

First of all, you'll be happy to know that the "project" is finished! I left school about 11:00. I brought the binder home (shhh...don't tell) and finished just before midnight. I bound them while I was watching....

The Dixie Chicks on Larry King Live tonight. Transcript here. Here are a couple of my favorite moments: (emphasis mine)

CALLER: Hi, chicks, this is the cat from Colorado. And a big meow to you guys, because you've given us a new high in the Rocky Mountain high with your philosophy and your courage to speak your truth. And remain true to who you are.

That being said, the question is how do you now feel about 70 percent of America, right behind you, right on your side of the wide open spaces and loving everything that you say and at least most of us do, does it give you a warm fuzzy feeling?

KING: I don't know if it's 70 percent, but it appears to be around 60 percent.

Are you sure? I thought it was 72 percent. Wishful thinking. Well thank you for your compliments. And what it does, it doesn't give me warm fuzzies, it gives me hope that, you know, I think everyone was really afraid after 9/11 and we're ready for someone to just take the reins and lead us to safety.

And here was this person telling us he was going to do that, and so I kind of felt like, you know, like Emily said, what country are we in? What year is this? Why aren't people questioning this person in charge? And so it's just nice to see Americans back to being what I always thought Americans were. But
I'd like to be in a room with the 30 percent.

and this too...

CALLER: Well check it out, the Dixie Chicks are on LARRY KING LIVE," taking questions from the American public. Last week, Donald Rumsfeld was on LARRY KING, but he wasn't on LARRY KING LIVE.

KING: It was taped in the afternoon.

CALLER: Indeed, he didn't take questions from the American public.

KING: It's hard to take calls when you're taped. CALLER: Yes well, I would like to observe that the Dixie Chicks have guts and integrity and
Donald Rumsfeld has shown he's a coward as well as a liar.


CALLER: Dixie Chicks, what do you think of Donald Rumsfeld?

KING: OK, I guess we were getting to that. Could have began with that.

He's hot. Go ahead, Emily, what do you think of Donald Rumsfeld?

He weaves around questions better than anyone I've ever seen.

MAGUIRE: I'll ditto.

KING: You all agree, he's the weaver?

ROBISON: He's the weaver. As most politicians are, but...

He has his story and he's sticking to it.

Heh. By this evening's posts you would think I was a huge Dixie Chicks fan. Not really. I love the song
Sin Wagon. For the subject and it is great jogging music. I guess I'm writing about it because I'm just amused by it all.

It is now the beginning of June. :-)
