Yes, indeed -- that's Dallas Independent School District's Dalton Sherman, the fifth-grade feel-good story of a school year in desperate need of good news. As we noted last week, Sherman got Oprah'd yesterday: He was showcased among the handful of "Little Phenoms" Winfrey handpicked as she searches for the "World's Smartest and Most Talented Kids." Seems The Big O relates to Sherman: "I was a speaker, did you know that?" she asked the Charles Rice Learning Center student. "I was doing this when I was 3, 5 and 7, and I wanted to be a news reporter. Good luck. I think you're on the way." Seriously, when does he become superintendent? --Robert Wilonsky
