Quitting your way to the top.

"American Idol" finalist Mario Vazquez quit the show. Old news.

Rumors included his previous connections with Michael Jackson (Vazquez sang for a spell as Jacko's backup), family issues and even porn in his past.

This writer thinks Vazquez hit the road for another reason: publicity he could never have gotten by being voted off the show in another week or three. In fact, since leaving the show, Vazquez has been seen on Letterman, Regis and MTV to name a few.

Need more proof that Vazquez is in it for the cheap fame? He hired Clay Aiken's attorney, the one who got Aiken out of a contract with the American Idol folks.

I am coming dangerously close to being interested by this. Let's hope it passes.

Oh, we know you are a faithful fan...thanks to Mrs. P.C. By the way, did she predict last night's outcome correctly. It's always easy to say who you predicted AFTER the results are in.

Fine. Here's my prediction for this week: Anyone talented enough to have a singing career wouldn't need "American Idol" in the first place.

That's my prediction for next week, too.

Yesterday, amid the frantic activity that characterizes 'cat day' at the spay clinic, one of the techs mentioned this guy dropping off of 'Idol'.
Without missing a beat, one of the vets said, 'Yeah, I just figured somebody turned up a picture of him with a goat'.

Alright "Brooks," as you call yourself. We'll see next week. It's on.
