    She Keeps Trying, Darn It

    Yet again, despite continual and mounting evidence to the contrary, Oprah still tries to prove that humanity is not dead .
    On a show that aired Monday, Winfrey gave more than 300 audience members $1,000 debit cards sponsored by the Bank of America to donate to a charitable cause.

    Winfrey called the show her "favorite giveaway ever."

    "I can honestly say that every gift I've ever given has brought at least as much happiness to me as it has to the person I've given it to," the 52-year-old talk-show host said. "That's the feeling I want to pass on to you."

    People can give the entire sum to one person -- relatives aren't eligible -- or they can split it among charitable causes. Audience members also received a DVD recorder to tape their stories for a future show.

    Oprah.  The Queen of Chicago.
    The sheer audacity of her continued attempts to make the world a slightly better place is truly remarkable.
    Oprah, you give us hope, my dear.  Don't ever change.

    Winfrey-Obama '08 would be a dream come true.
