The "Nice" And Wonderful World Of NewAgers: Heartless, Thoughtless And Superficial

"The jeering audience of vain young people trying to catch the camera’s eye and the preening judges of this contest are the nasty boys and girls of fairy stories who mock the poor old lady because she is not young and beautiful, only to be punished when her real self is revealed. And their punishment is to be revealed as they truly are - heartless, thoughtless and superficial - the flotsam and jetsam of the polluted seas of celebrity, likely to sink without trace into toxic foam."

-- Minette Marrin, also describing what Susan Boyle has revealed about contemporary Western culture, in The Times Online.
