Little secret: I don't like Oprah.
I usually don't appreciate her show, generally don't agree with her taste in books and still am not sure that large bunches of people won't wake up after Super Tuesday and wonder if they voted for Obama because they wanted to, or if they got caught up in a Winfrey-frenzy.
That said, I don't think she's evil.
But I don't think she's a genius, either.
Lunch hour today I found an old Woman's World magazine. (You'd be amazed at how old the magazines can be in the X-ray department of a rural hospital) In it was an article about 'plugging into your inner genius' and featured an arresting first line about 'Do you want to be a mastermind like Einstein, da Vinci, or Oprah? Follow these simple strategies below!'
I goggled. I had to be reading that wrong, right?
Oprah Winfrey has an interesting story. She's a self-created multi-media extravaganza, all wrapped up with a bow. She's done good things for the environment and gotten people to read, etc, etc, etc.
