Mary Chapin Carpenter Update

The Rounder Records artist officially canceled her summer tour three weeks ago, with this info in a press release:
She recently finished the Spring 2007 leg of The Calling tour during which time she experienced pain from a recent back injury. She was subsequently hospitalized for a pulmonary embolism, possibly as a result of her limited
movement during the spring tour.
Having been released on April 27 from Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, VA., Carpenter is well on her way to recovery. She hopes to resume touring sometime in 2008. It's great to see some fresh news releases on her personal website that already indicate that she's back in action as she recuperates!

Always a Mary fan for a long time now, ever since Heroes and Heroines, one of the most poetic songs I've ever heard.

Lindbergh is the hero, but is there a heroine in the lyrics?

I've thought it might be Annie Oakley, but I'm never certain. Maybe it's no one specific?

Anyone have any thoughts?
