Dec 09, 2010: Singularly talented people

This was fun. Last night, I tweeted/FaceBooked the question "Who comes to mind when you think of a talent that's truly 'singular'?" Your responses are below; what a great list!

I've linked each person to their corresponding Wikipedia, and *'d the ones I know little or nothing about. I'm thinking I'll read one per day until the *s go away. Heh; why pay for education ever again?

Interesting post. I am from China so I am particularly interested in knowing the reason why Deng Xiaoping is on the list while Chairman Mao is not.

Thanks for reminding me of Wesley Willis! In '95 I made him a sandwich at Subway before one of his performances at Twisters in Richmond, Virginia. I was scared because he was huge and schizophrenic and sang songs about vampire bats:
