09/04/2004: Thought for the Day:
I haven't been watching "American Idol" this season. Frankly it's everything I hate about television rolled into one taco of a program.
But I hear the most "talented" of the contestants was soundly voted off by those of us in the audience, whose keen sense of talent has made possible, among other things, the career success of Ryan Seacrest.
Irony of ironies then that Ryan himself would chastise the audience for their voting faux pas:
"America, don't forget you have to vote for the talent. You have to keep your favorites in the competition. You cannot let talent like this slip through the cracks."
Since when has America been interested in talent? Talent slips through cracks all the time, like water through a subway grate.
And if being untalented were criminal, Ryan Seacrest is Public Enemy Number 1.
