American Idol

American Idol began it's sixth television season earlier tonight and I can hardly wait to see it (I'll watch it on tape later).

I don't know why I (or so many Americans) are so interested in a televised talent contest, but we are. Maybe it's the theological angle: Simon Cowell personifies law; Paula Abdul grace; and Randy Jackson a mixture of the two. Maybe it's the "car wreck" angle (the first several episodes are far better than anything else in the season mainly because you see so many of the "singers" who didn't make it). Whatever the reason, American Idol is captivating.

Here's to season number 6!
