American Idol

After last week, I told Lady that I wasn't going to watch any more Idol if Deandre was cut and then saved by the judges (as I figured would happen).
Diva-Andre

Jennifer Lopez told Brackensick that she was outvoted by Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson to use the judges' one-time-only ability to save him from dismissal.
"I only get one vote," said Lopez. "I'm sorry. We're not saving you tonight."(link)


Heh, I knew J-lo wanted him to stay and I thought Randy did. Good on ya Randy

Shooting

Shooting in California
Fox News is reporting a shooting at Oikos University in California (a Christian college)

At least one dead and six wounded. The shooter was described as heavily built (set?) Asian male.

Report from CBSNews (here)

Update:

Reported that at least 5 are dead and the shooter is in custody (headline alert so no link)

Energy

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) noted that before this February a new reactor hadn’t been built in the U.S. in more than 30 years. Now, in the past seven weeks, four reactors have been licensed.(link)
Finally we're going to start producing cheaper electricity in this country. Thirty years is way to long to use a proven source of power for the American people.

Travyon - Zimmerman

TAMPA - One of George Zimmerman's neighbors is speaking out, saying looks can be deceiving.
Despite booking video from the Sanford Police Department that many say shows George Zimmerman largely unscathed from his encounter with Trayvon Martin, the neighbor said he saw Zimmerman with obvious injuries.
The neighbor is talking for the first time about what he saw on George Zimmerman's face less than 24-hours after Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin.(link)
More twists and turns in this tragedy. While Sharpton (et al) call for violence and 'justice'; they should let the system play out and see if there is any there there.
