Not since the series finale of St. Elsewhere, which I watched diligently from 2nd to 8th grade 1982-1988, have I been THIS UPSET about a television show result as I was last night when I learned Melinda Dolittle did not make the finals of American Idol. All those tween-age girls with cell phones and text messages voting for Blake wikki-wikki-bzzt-tah-boop-da-whhosh-kah Lewis helped put my girl Mindy Doo away. THAT RIGHT THERE is reason to not let kids have so much technology at such a young age.
