I simply must comment

For the record: I’ve never watched American Idol and have no intention of doing so, but when the Letter of the day in the Star & Sickle is about the show, I felt compelled to read it.

Now, from what I could glean by reading the letter in its entirety, there appears to be a bit of controversy surrounding one of the contestants on this over-hyped show.

Apparently some believe Sanjaya Malakar should be eliminated from the contest because he’s not good enough, but viewers, who I guess have some say in the matter, are keeping him on with their votes.

I think he should be bounced because he looks like Leif Garrett.

I’m still not sure if it was a good idea or very bad, for there, in the last paragraph, is this question:

What happened to our sense of democracy and acceptance of the rights of others?

And now a question for Arlene Cody of Eden Prairie, the authoress of this drivel:

Exactly what in the hell does the fact that some think this guy sucks have to do with democracy or his rights?

No rights are being VIOLATED; Democracy is not in danger here.

Some of your fellow droolers who watch this crap think the guy sucks.

Why do you want to take their right to think he sucks away from them? Is it because you are a fascist, Arlene?

You and Pelosi might be able to get a group discount on a Constitution 101 class.

God, but you are a stupid, stupid woman.

Read the US Constitution and you’ll know why you are so stupid!

Who let in the idiots?

Shut the dooor before more come in.
