Jim Wooley just posted a great entry on his ThinqLinq site. It involves using Linq to XML and VB9's XML Literals to query Shakespeare's plays. He first joins all the plays on his drive together into one big XML file and then gets the top 50 characters by the number of lines they speak. Head over there to see the code. Very clean, IMO.

 Those of you who know me know that I'm a Shakespeare fanatic and a pretty big fan of Linq also <g> - this post just made my day. Great way to (almost) start the weekend. Thanks, Jim!
