American Idol: Scotty McCreery

This has been driving me mad since this season of American Idol began.  I KNEW Scotty McCreery looked like somebody but I just couldn't place whom (chalk it up to old age).

Scotty McCreery
Alfred E. Neuman

Do you see it? Maybe if they're side by side...

Really, I think if you look through the Americal Idol slideshow, you'll see even more of a resemblance:

Scotty McCreery - Contestants

Disclaimer:  Knowing who Alfred E. Neuman is does not make me old, just knowledgeable.

Clothing Supporting Military is Considered Violent

I have a son serving our country in Afghanistan. My youngest son wore a shirt to school with his brother's MP Company logo and was told to change because it demonstrated violence:

The logo:
OEF 2010 - 2011

School Policy:
Clothing with reference to obscenities or sex, violence, alcohol or other drugs, drug paraphernalia, tobacco or tobacco products, gangs or gang symbols or other inappropriate symbols are prohibited.

I'd like to apologize to my son's school and the school district for not only having a son in the military to protect your rights and freedom but also for having another son support his brother and the Army.

Oh, and in case you don't know what OEF stands for:
Operation Enduring Freedom

Ironic, isn't it?
