Andy Whitman on American Idol

Andy Whitman on American Idol: “I have this problem. Yes, another one. And I’m not being facetious; it really is a problem. Deep in my heart of hearts, I want to love people, be tolerant of diversity, celebrate our differences. I liked old Jesse Colin Young, and I still have a soft spot for his sixties anthem about smiling on my brother and getting together and loving one another, right now. Then I encounter people who love the television show American Idol, and it’s all shot to hell. Amen, my brother. Amen.”
