Dancing with the “Stars”

I keep wondering to myself, what is the appeal?  But then I realize it has a little bit of everything (sex, drama, comedy, competition, reality) and a whole lot of nothing.  It’s just entertainment.  One of the guilty indulgences I mention in my About page.

So just to be on record: I like the figure skater, the pussycat doll (I surprised myself with this one), and the football player (although he’ll never win).  But all that might change by tomorrow.
