Not ready to make nice

Just wanted to spotlight this Dixie Chicks song and music video, which never fails to give me chills every time I watch it. It's an unforgettable political statement, and the imiages are indelible. The stark contrast between black and white, the paint on her hands and dress, the jail stripes, her large soulful eyes framed in dark mascara peering out of a pale and luminous face that is holding all of us to account for our actions and lack thereof.

Way to take a stand, girl.
