I'm jumping on the Susan Boyle bandwagon. I think she can handle it. She seems unusually sane (much like our current President. Is an international outbreak of sanity quietly unfolding? But I digress…). What interests me in the Boyle phenomenon is how often people referred to themselves as cynics when discussing their reaction to her performance on "Britain's Got Talent." They were cynics before she sang, and big-hearted converts after.
