The Maines event

Down in Dixie, they’ve taken their licks
But they broadened their base in ’06.
Now the band’s been redeemed
This week, so it seemed,
When the Grammy’s made nice with the Chicks.

Three (?) men and a baby

Poor Anna Nicole was reviled
As grand dame of the girls who've gone wild.
Now, her fortune at stake,
The Savant has to make
An admission: "I fathered her child!"

Houston; we have a problem

What rational person would mace
Her rival for love in the face
Or attempt a kidnap
That’s so far off the map
You might say it was way out in space?
