The Callous Sophisticates Laughed at Judy's Little Head

And at Susan Boyle, a 48-year-old Scottish spinster who had never sung before anything larger than a village church.  She appeared on "Britain's Got Talent," saying she wanted to be like professional singer we'd never heard of.  

They laughed.

Until the third or fourth note, when their faces broke into stunned smiles, and then simply smiles, and later a few tears.  Four days later, she is almost certainly more famous than that singer she wanted to be like.

Watch the clip.  And smile.
