I would hope so. The MidWest still has to represent!

Money isn't everything, but it keeps the kids in touch.

How do you know their intent [that it was for applause]? Every interview has suggested that it is their true feelings so it does not sound like it was for "cheap applause". Sounds like their intent was simply to state their opinion, something you say you support in the first sentence.
Since I wasn't there, I had to rely on radio and tv reports of the event. Correct or not, it was presented as a 'play to the audience'. It was as if someone said, "Let's make a controversial statement in front of this crowd of people who will most likely support us". The previous sentence is a fictionalized dramatization of what I feel probably happened, based upon the information of which I was made aware. It is not intended to be taken as a factual account of events. There was, to my knowledge, no further elaboration from the trio while onstage. MUCH was said later, however. If, as you say, these comments were also made previous to the event in question, it would have an effect on my opinion. However, from their own website after the remark...

3/14/2003 - (Maines) "As a concerned American citizen, I apologize to President Bush because my remark was disrespectful. I feel that whoever holds that office should be treated with the utmost respect. We are currently in Europe and witnessing a huge anti-American sentiment as a result of the perceived rush to war. While war may remain a viable option, as a mother, I just want to see every possible alternative exhausted before children and American soldiers' lives are lost. I love my country. I am a proud American."

[Update - 4/3/03 - Dixie Chick Natalie Maines told a New Zealand TV reporter last week that her now-infamous slam at President George W. Bush 'was a joke'].

That would have been late June of last year when my supervisor decided to document a situation that he thought was unacceptable. My written response to his documentation covered every decision he had made in the previous 5 months (many of which he apologized to me for as he informed me of them, indicating that he KNEW he was compromising my ability to do an effective job) that directly lead to the very situation he was laying the blame at my feet for. A week later, I was transferred from his district to a new location in what could only be considered a demotion.

My response? As the fiscal year ended last week, my new assignment finished the year in the top three (of 140) in the company and when the final numbers are in next week, could be number one.

In short, I could have been the 'Team Player', taken my beating, crawling safely along, holding on to my position at the cost of my 'pair' but I could not allow a coward to blame me for his own failings. I said what had to be said and accepted and dealt with the consequences. Don't speak to me of 'total risk' again.

Now, show me something concrete prior to the London event and I'll acknowledge my error. Meanwhile, my opinion stands.

BTW...you never responded to my previous thread question about Miami. How was the gtg? Specifically, did you get to socialize much with the other M-B owners or was the time (and weather) too limiting?
