Yes, we do watch American Idol and we're just sayin, who doesn't. So we thought Kelly was curtains but, as has happened infrequently, we were wrong. What exactly is the appeal of the Idol? We have a kid who we have always thought should be the Idol but says it's not her genre. She clearly doesn't understand how wonderful it would be for us to be in the audience with the camera close up on "Jordan's Family" and her parents shedding one perfect tear on each cheek-- but I digress. The appeal of Idol is that by dialing 1-866-whatever, every American has the power to participate in the most popular, the most advertising expensive broadcast phenonmenom. And the Idol is a safe place to be. We don't have to worry about nudity, foul language, religious crap or distasteful behavior. Just plain good clean fun. In fact, contestants have been eliminated for trying to make a personal statement about their beliefs-- Mandisa sang about her Christianity-- We're just sayin. America loves safe. Despite the networks and cables attempt to take us elsewhere we love reality TV because although it may show the worst in all of us, it is safe. But I digressed again, and I'll do that alot and you'll come to love it. So what about Ace. I was right there with him until he touched his scar a few weeks ago. To be perfectly honest, it grossed me out. Adorable as he is, he never recovered -- for me. I won't tell you who I think should win because I don't want it to impact on your vote but I'm pretty much with Brenda Sykes, Paris should be doing things 17 year olds do and Kathryn makes me shed one perfect tear-- right along with her parents.
