Well, Katya, I think it's

Well, Katya, I think it’s probably just over-exposure. I don’t watch her show, but then I hate almost all television. The only thing I find irritating about Oprah is her inability to embrace her big beautiful self. But hey, no one is perfect. There aren’t a lot of people in power (and she has a lot of it) that have used it to do real good in the world. Like getting families to have dinner together, or teaching basic fiscal responsibility. Or, and especially this, getting people to read real books. The world has so few heroes. It’s hard to see this one that’s under our noses. It’s easy to assume that it’s because Oprah is female, fat, and black–but I like to give folks more credit than that. I think people have just had too much of her, and are losing sight of her accomplishments.
