Afghan Idol

NOON -- The crowning glory of our cherished Western Freedom has come to Afghanistan, but reviews are decidedly mixed. Reuters reports from Kabul:
    Hundreds of fans clamored on Tuesday to catch a glimpse of their favorite finalists from the TV show "Afghan Star," Afghanistan's version of "American Idol," which is watched by millions but condemned by Islamic clerics as immoral.

    The finalists, two men and for the first time a woman, will appear in Friday's competition, where one will be eliminated before the last show to decide the winner a week later.
The winner will also be eliminated.
