I'm not a television fan but even I couldn't escape the sensational story of Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent. I watched the video on You Tube and thought it one of the most moving episodes of its type I've ever seen. I then thought I would write a blog about it but after reading Colette Douglas-Home's piece in The Herald I realised that I just couldn't write anything as thoughtful as Colette's piece. In fact, this column is now, by a very long way, the most read item on the Herald's website. People right round the world are reading it. Definitely worth viewing the You Tube clip if you haven't seen it and then reading  Colette's piece.
