The new math

Reading a review of last night’s American Idol, I discovered this gem:

He wowed them with a soulful Desperado, though, prompting Randy’s four-word assessment: “See you in Hollywood, dude.”

“See” is number one. “You” is number two. “In” is number three. “Hollywood” is number four. “Dude” is number what?

I like USA Today. I applaud that it’s written for a 6th-grade level because that encourages more people to read it. It’s the best newspaper for presenting a broad range of news stories with minimal slant. But it shouldn’t be written by imbeciles.

I suppose “dude” is number threEve.
