Andrew Dansby of the Houston Chronicle has written a peach of a story about the current ukulele renaissance. He covers everyone from Eddie Vedder and Bruce Springsteen to Bill Tapia. This is a must-read, even for the jaded amongst us, if only to remind oneself of why we love the uke so much.
Dansby has done his homework, and it shows. I hereby nominate him for the 2006 Ukelitzer Prize. Link
