      Well, it seems that tone of voice can make all the difference in the world when a statement is made.   It has been reported that a contestant, by the name of Mark Mudd, auditioned for the American Idol show.   The audition apparently didn’t go well and as he was exiting, Mark Mudd said, “Be Careful”.   The American Idol judges took that comment negatively since the audition didn’t get him on the show.  

       Both Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul allegedly felt threatened.   With Paula Abdul’s recent experience with an obssessed fan’s, Paula Goodspeed, suicide near her home…it is understandable that she would be a bit wary; however, i think had they concentrated on Mark Mudd’s tone of voice…maybe they would have heard a clue that tipped the balance of common sense that the statement held no threat of future violence.  The judge’s alleged perception of the statement was influenced by the alleged failure of the audition to get the performer on the program as a contestant.

       The audition was in Louisville, Kentucky; and in that region of the country, and others, “be careful” is a common phrase spoken in parting.   I do it myself…it is the way i grew up…it is a caring way to part company; it expresses concern for the other person’s well-being.   (more…)

         Well, this is interesting…tonight on Dancing With the Stars…Kim Kardashian left the show before 82 year old Cloris Leachman.  HMMMMM…what can you say?   That is just sad.  Someone young, someone able bodied, someone who supposedly has a strong following, because of her “reality celebrity” television show, couldn’t beat out an 82 year old comedian/actress…who really can’t dance, who goes for the joke with her performances and who shocks viewers with her poor taste in speech!  

         Well, we are in for another week…of mugging by Cloris.  I certainly thought it was time for her to leave this week…but, what can you say…Kim certainly didn’t help matters with her poor performances.  Thanks alot Kim…i really like Dancing With The Stars…but, i really think that they need to respect the fact that their show is supposed to be family friendly…let’s make sure that future performers remember that fact!
