What is the best general purpose lens for a Canon SLR?

Basically, the standard lens is a piece of crap and I need a better one. I have a Digital Rebel XT, and I want one with a wide variety of choices. Id like to take pictures of thunderstorms and stars and such, so Id like it to have a wide aperture. And just general use. Any sugguestions?

I don't know who you've been talking to, but none of the Canon lenses are crummy ... the 18-55 mm lens is a good general lens. NO lens that Canon makes is bad ... they would not be one of the two providers of professional cameras if they made anything that was of low quality.

The difference between f/2.8 and f/3.5 is only a third of a stop, the difference between ISO 100 and 125 ... not a lot.

You can always buy the 50 mm f/1.4 if you want fast, but then you will not have the variety of focal lengths the zoom will give you.
