Return of the Chicks

Almost a full house — and no protests — greeted the Dixie Chicks last night at the Ford Center.

"I contemplated not wearing a short skirt, since I knew I'd be sitting on stairs, but then I remembered you've all seen me naked."

"Something recently happened to us. We call it 'the incident.' I'd like to say there won't be any more incidents."

This could be just playing to the crowd — I mean, "the incident" itself involved playing to the crowd — but I'd like to think she means it.
