I’ve just got a few words to say regarding 23-year-old Scott MacIntyre’s entry into the top 36 on Wed. night’s American Idol.  Yeah, we know the Scottsdale, Arizona native is visually impaired, but he also sings and plays piano really well and he’s easy on our eyes.  
When Scott’s mom was brought to tears with the terrific news that her son made the cut, I’m pretty sure that parents of kids with special needs everywhere could relate to the magnitude of the event and the remarkable milestone this family had just achieved. 
My interest in watching Idol Season 8 just went way up.
