Les Trixie chiclettes ask what would Bruce Springsteen do?

Here are my guesses:


10. Take some singing lessons, maybe even a guitar lesson or two;
9. Stop taking himself so damn seriously;
8. Get a big dude to play saxaphone;
7. Two words: Max Weinberg;
6. Tactfully refrain from writing a song about ex-governors hanging out in Turnpike Men's Rooms;
5. Loan his neighbor his garden weasel, because you know A.) he's got a well-stocked garage, and B.) he's one of those cool neighbors who'll actually loan you tools and stuff;
4. Invite Paul McCartney over for a tofu BBQ, have a few beers, maybe play some pool, get him over his woman troubles;
3. Record 5 or 6 completely iconic albums;
2. Sell out Giants Stadium for a months worth of 4 hour a night concerts;

And the number one thing Bruce Springsteen would do if he found himself a Dixie Chick:

1. Be gracious, have class, and not be a whining, snivelling punk.

Oh, and you can bet that he wouldn't be caught dead having his latest album bundled together with Crashing the Gates in the 59 cent remaindered bin at Books a Million.

But then again, Bruce Springsteen wouldn't have to.

Mrs. C. watches "Good Morning America" while getting ready for work each morning. I noticed the Dixie Chicks were on yesterday, and then this morning, I noticed they were on again.

"What's with the Dixie Chicks again?" I asked.

"They're doing three days on them," Mrs. C. said.

This absolutely floored me. These seditious mediocrities get three days of fawning interviews from the press -- to what end? To convince us that the universe is meaningless? To destroy their own ratings? To punish us?

Why, I ask, why!?

I heard someone call in to a talk show who knew "The Boss" when he was young. He had a very unflattering nickname then. If anyone knows it, I would like to cram that back in my brain again. The guy who called was pretty funny. He supposedly yelled at the now famous singer with his old nickname, and Bruce supposedly turned in recognition. I realize that this is petty, but I am not talking to people at Powerline or anything. :)
