My American Idol

As many in the autism-related community know, there is an American Idol contestant, James Durbin, who has Asperger's Syndrome.  He thrilled me this past week with his performance of Judas Priests' You Have Another Thing Coming.  It's nice to have a rocker in this competition.

James Durbin brings his own style to the competition.  While Bil does not appear to show musical talent, he does love to listen to the radio.  One day, maybe, James Durbin will be on there and Bil will enjoy him.

Many people think of people with Aspergers of  being talented in science ("geeks"), but there are a good number of people on the Spectrum who have talent in music or art.

It's nice to see one of them making it in the neurotypical world.
