@judyev wrote earlier about talents - are some more important than others? As I was considering her thoughts the blurb on the back of a book I'm reading caught my eye and I've never seen such fanciful words used to extol the virtues of a writer's talent: "Leonardo Sciascia is so infuriatingly good that you wonder whether his Protean talents are not those of a secret syndicate". Wow, just wow.

I think all talents are equally as good and thumbs up for those who learn such talents. I do believe though that some talents might seem more important or better because they are more intriguing, interesting and make you want to see more. When programmes like britains got talent show people who have talents that are laughed at I don't think that is right. No matter what they have shown they have spent lots of time learning what they do and to be laughed at is so sad.
@pgntwo From the town of Agrigento if I'm right, and I do look forward to acquainting myself with the little places the redoubtable Inspector has made famous when I presence myself in Sicily next month. I also hope to sample the pasta with a squid ink sauce that he is so fond of.
