I may be a little paranoid, but run with me on this. Don't you think it's a little weird that the press spends an inordinate amount of time talking about Pfc. Jessica Lynch, the American POW rescued in Iraq, gives oodles of attention to that kidnapped Mormon chick Elizabeth Smart, and (the clincher), the worst singer on American Idol, Carmen Rasmussen, was not eliminated last night, per Fox's very irregular decision not to cut any one this week? Notice that all these are all white blond chicks. To be fair, though, a wounded Private Lynch shot at Iraqi soldiers while Elizabeth Smart was totally brainwashed. And, yeah, Reuben will probably beat out Carmen. Even if she is from "Bountiful" Utah.
