Less heart-warming, Oprah has decided to find more ways to give so everybody knows it:
First, the network has ordered eight episodes of a reality series called "Oprah Winfrey's The Big Give," in which 10 people will be challenged to take Oprah-dispensed money and resources and come up with "the most powerful, sensational, emotional and dramatic ways to give to others," ABC announced.

There's another reality show, too. She says she's a Christian, I wonder if she's forgotten Matthew 6:2-4:
Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
I got up and spent an hour ordering the paper the way I wanted it and watching a tape of "Meet the Press" and then I slept in the recliner for four hours. I had an unusual version of my stepmother pushing me out of my own house -- this one was set in a very modern city with canals instead of streets.
