: Dear WE TV.. As a fan of figure
: skating, I was interested in the
: maiden effort of "Skating's
: Next Star." I won't be
: watching the series. Here's why.
: The lack of professionalism on the
: part of Rudy Galindo and Okasan
: Gritschuk (is she not still
: "Pasha"?) was disgusting.
: After a young man named
: "Chris" skated a poor

: snorted, and put their heads
: together and whispered all while
: this skater awaited their comments.
: The hurt and bewildered expression
: on his face broke my heart. So it
: wasn't his best effort. He deserved
: more courtesy than these two
: exhibited. One would think Rudy
: would be especially aware of how the
: insensitivity and unkindness of
: others can hurt. He is no John
: Nicks, and Miss Gritschuk is
: fortunate to be in the public eye at
: all. This is not "American
: Idol" where delusional young
: people try out on impulse. This
: young skater had obviously worked
: for years to achieve some level of
: competence. I'm surprised Kristi
: Yamaguchi would be associated with
: such a shoddy endeavor. I turned
: off the TV and opened a book.
