It is a truth universally acknowledged, that on a slow news week, we get desperate

Standard

Jane Austen’s famous, timeless opening sentence of Pride and Prejudice has been coopted for, of all things, an article about AMERICAN IDOL.

I believe it was Jane Austen who once observed that it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good voice, must be in want of an “American Idol” crown. So it is that 12 men gather on Monday (Feb. 21) night to begin the process of redeeming their gender after the disgraceful third season showing.

For the record, we’re cheering for Anthony.
