I'm heading off to Charleston, West Virginia for the Spring meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference, so I probably won't do a lot of blogging during the next couple of days.
In the meantime, if the Susan Boyle craze has passed you by, you owe it to yourself to check out her staggering performance (embedding disabled) on Britain's Got Talent. When Boyle, who is 47, unemployed, and quite ordinary-looking, walked onstage, both the audience and the judges snickered at her. Then she began singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables, and moved them to tears. Susan Boyle is a beautiful woman and a gifted artist.
