Ceci n'est pas une personne.

So, now I have an awesome printer. That means it's time to start putting pictures up.

First the hunt for cheap picture frames and mats. That means a Valu-Village trip!

Second, I've seen these stick on hooks from 3M. They have little hooks, and hooks as big as coat hangers. They are supposedly removable without damaging the paint. They make picture hanger versions of these hooks, how much weight can they hold, and do they wear out (i.., after a couple months, will my pictures be falling off the walls?), and how well do they deal with heat and moisture (for hanging pictures over the fire place and in the bathroom)?

Controversy in the land of American Idol...

In season six, Frenchie Davis was removed from the show for racy photos. Not porn, but actually lingerie modeling. They images were never released to the public and the A.I. staff never saw the pictures. Yet she was booted.

A current contestant, Antonella Barba, it's been found out has hardcore porn pictures of herself found on the net, for the whole (18+) world to see. The show has not booted her.

The difference? Frenchie is black and Antonella is white.

Now stepping back form the racial aspect, should racy pictures disqualify someone? Should nudes? Should hardcore porn? What past actions should invalid a person right/ability to entertain on TV? If FOX (who owns A.I.) were to apply this no nudity in the past rule across the board for all their shows, which entertainers would get the cut?
