not saying status of pilot, news media being led to believe he hasn't been killed. Don't know if he's injured or what.

Holy cow. Here's to hopin' and prayin'...

That's OK, we all have our favorites. It's nice to have some good male voices this season. I liked Gladys Knight's description of Ruben: The Velvet Teddy Bear.

And with that I'll say good night.

Well, that was nice. My next step was going to be what is known by my children as the "mother sweep",,that was usually in the car when I yelled "Quit fighting" and swept my right arm back sweeping the back seat with blows to everything not crunched down. They say it was cruel and abusive. We usuallly drove in peace after that. They grew up to be nice girls too!1 I highly recommend it along with the "Mother sit" which I will tell you about tomorrow.

Kimberly Locke gives me the creeps . . . Kimberly Caldwell (cute blond) is all right . . . Glad to hear Locke is in the bottom three, although I'm surprised Trenyce would be anywhere near the botttom . . .

Now, now.

"Excitement" in the news means that the REPORTERS aren't doing anything.....

(Anchors of course, never do anything..)

(When the news media are quiet, the troops are working, and vice versa.)

I was just watching Greta,

OK, one more thing before I truly sign off for the night. I saw the end of Greta's show and she affectionately referred to "my generals" when speaking of her guests. It was nice.

They should change the name to "American Line-Up". And Kimberly Caldwell is a total phony.

After she's voted off (I pray every week) she'll do Playboy and go back to obscurity.

I think the mother sweep is something genetically ingrained in women, it lies dormant until our offspring reach the age of 2, then it becomes a natural response to loud noises/and or sibling to sibling violence.

And with that I'll say good night.

I loved Reuben's rendition of Alabama and noticed tonight that he said he liked country. I know Gladys Knight has to be up there in years and yet she looked wonderful when she was on Idol. I am enjoying the competition and it is a welcome relief from the worry of the war. Night!

Our teams are all over the missions that they are tasked with- great news to learn that the pilot's been recovered- hoping for good news on the pilot's condition- (I) previously reported a/c downed over Baghdad- (corrected) area was Karbala-

As Bush now knows, "expunged" doesn't mean destroyed. And it was only a "felony" because the feds have practically made jaywalking a felony.

What's the $ limit for theft to become a felony these days?

Where did you hear he was recovered? I haven't found that yet and official word from CentCom doesn't mention it.

I hope he's well.

I sure never heard her say "my lawyers" when she was on CNN. I saw it too and it was nice.

You may be right but I learned it at the elbow of a military wife on our base. She also advised me never to get a station wagon as it nullified the effect of the sweep. She owned a vw bug and considered it the height of an armored childmobile,,said she could reach anyone while driving even the cowardly ones who hid on the floor. She was a very funny lady,,husband was the base pediatrician!!

Memphis needs some new booking info boards! But then again, they don't know how to prioritize their budget over there.

Oh wait, that's everywhere these days.

Next time you're near the IL state line, wave at my sister's house in Zion.....

(She's Master Chief on a repair tender out in Guam, at last report. No news for a few weeks, might be closer to the war in Diego Garcia. God, she hated that place last time she was stationed there. Nothing to do when they time off, and there were sharks in the lagoon so no swimming or diving or snorkeling.)

Thing is, you can read this thread for 15 minutes and get caught up on 6 hours of newcasts on 4 networks, and get every sound bite aanybody ever said around the world....

Plus the current status of three of four TV shows, and the gossip of everybody writing.

Remarkable multitasking.

I think the men are going to be the winners this year. One of them anyway. The women are ok but no real strong singer. But, I like Kimberly Locke's voice the best of all the women.
