re: The other side of the 1st Amendment.

First off, I reckon kudos are in order for your peers recognizing you last night at the annual music industry pat on the back.

Absent that, I'm not sure how impressive winning the Grammy is, really. See, when Ms. Maine's declared upon receiving her golden idol of Bell's grammophone that:
"I think people are using their freedom of speech tonight with all of these awards,"
Apparently, Ms. Maines wasn't considering the 33% in album sales last year, or the 14 concerts which had to be cancelled during last year's tour, prompting reports that it was "in trouble", or that many radio stations flat out refuses to play your songs, or the former fans who would rather destroy your CDs than listen to them.

What this says to MemoTo is that the 1st Amendment is a two way street. Yes, you have the right to badmouth our President overseas. But the other side of the coin is America's freedom to associate.

So, in spite of the music industry's equivalent of "yes men," America still appears to be choosing not to.

Even when you pose nude to whine about it.
