L'AFFAIRE DIXIE CHICKS: They're "ashamed" that Bush is a Texan? Country music fans aren't letting them get away with that. While they're taking a beating, I'll pile on: In their ubiquitous cover of "Landslide," the Chicks hit every note, but have so little emotion in their voices that I wonder if they even understand what the song is about. I love Fleetwood Mac's original, but when I hear the Dixie Chick's version I am, to paraphrase Joseph Heller, always impressed by how unimpressive it is.
