While you’re all in the mood to weigh in with your opinions, here’s another one to let loose about.
I’ll tell you what I think, though it’s hard to do without obscenities.
A: Why is everyone so amazed that Ms. Boyle can sing? Why does one have to be attractive to sound good? There’s nothing in reality that equates the two. She sings beautifully, but it wouldn’t be so shocking if she were beautiful looking? That is just flat-out wrong. And it makes me mad.
B. Those TV guys act all amazed and repentant at the end, but they’re just doing it for TV’s sake. Charm > ratings > ads > dollars. They’re still condescending jerks who are selling a culture of judging people by their appearances and mocking people for money.
C. This is by far the most negative post to date on this happy blog. Clearly I’m in a lousy mood and may have to delete it in the morning.
