It says “POSSE”!

Dixie Chicks Hire ‘Posse’ To Protect Them From Angry Fans
After Natalie Maines made an anti-Bush statement while performing overseas in March, the Dixie Chicks have received threats from angry Americans and have had to employ round-the-clock security.
According to Emily Robison, the group now has an entourage of guards wherever they go to deal with the rage directed at the group, which Robison adds, has gone too far. She told syndicated radio host Bob Kingsley: “I feel like our safety is a huge, important issue right now. We officially have a posse now because we have to have security people with us at all times, and this has gotten to a point where enough is enough, you know? When you feel like your own safety is an issue, I think people have to step back.”
Robison considers the reaction to Maines’ comment “un-American,” especially because she said it was misunderstood and taken out of context. “That is un-American to me,” Robison said. “That is un-American that something that somebody said can be, first of all, misconstrued and just totally taken out of context, and she’s apologized for it which a lot of people don’t know.”
The Dixie Chicks will meet fans face-to-face for the first time since coming under such scrutiny when they kick off their Top Of The World tour on Thursday (May 1), in Greenville, South Carolina.
