Essay of the Week: 4/15/07-4/21/07

The Washington Post did an experiment. If they got the man who is thought by some to be the world’s best violinist to play as street musician for an hour, how many people would stop and listen?

For this week’s essay we have selected the article that detailed the results of that experiment.

It made me think of how many interesting, talented, and knowledgeable people are ignored in this world because they are not labeled by the authorities as being worthy of note.
