I am usually very careful not to "go off topic" and thereby divert the attention of my loyal readers from the usual fare that they expect on these pages but in this instance I am linking to two posts from corporate law professor Gordon Smith on his blog called The Conglomerate, here and here, about the recent sensation about Susan Boyle, the unlikely rising star from the U.K. who has an interesting background with a voice that many have described as that of an angel. If you want to be inspired and take a few short minutes to be uplifted by her voice and her story, see the links above, as well as another site here.

UPDATE: The Wall Street Journal’s online edition picked-up this post here.
