James Frey? But at least he was forgiven by Oprah. Or Oprah was forgiven by him. Or...or...ah, hell, I wish Oprah would just get her damn goodbyes over with!!!

Oprah thinks she is some secular God. She really does stink. Not to tar and feather all talk show hosts. Phil Donahue has been a very good American since he left teevee.

Just the idea that he doesn't have a tv show but Hannity does burns my buns.

When Common is the only controversy Fox can gin up you pretty much know Obama has aces.

Oprah has endorsed alot of really dodgy new age practices. And alot of people take her word as gospell. She had to backtrack once when a viewer called in to say she was going to ignore her doctor's recomendation to get tested for cancer, because of what Oprah said about "The Answer" or "The Way" or "The Secret" or whatever the fuck it was. "No, you should probably do that," she had to say.

My plan is to call all of my ultraChristian friends (the ones who wear it on their sleeves like a boy scout badge) to verify they're still here come Sunday morning.

If they answer, they got some 'splaining to do.

Hi folks, it is not officially 6:30 pm here in the UK, and I say without a shadow of a doubt, the Rapture has most definitely happened. My flatmates have all just disapeared. . .

But Steve,

It would have happened in the US before it happened in the UK, and I just talked to one of the few persons I'm sure would have gone up.

So, you sure they aren't just passed out somewhere or perhaps so drunk they can't find their way home yet?
