The following is my response to an article I read about American Idol having plans to cut the results shows in half, to 30 minutes.
"American Idol" . . . I never have liked the title, although early on totally enjoyed the show. The show name is kind of an oxymoron. 'American' - a republic of democracy, and 'Idol' - idolatry has no place in anything American. Not to mention that labeling someone as an idol is expecting a lot ... are idols allowed to falter, and fail? ~nrl
