Oprah IS Chicago

Oprah WinfreyMichigan Avenue, also known as the "Magnificent Mile" in Chicago will be closing down part of the street so Chicago's own Oprah Winfrey can do a live location taping to open her 24th season. It will no doubt be a show so ostentatious and so grand that it could only be Oprah. Naturally, since Oprah is generous to her people, the show and its accompanying performance by the Black Eyed Peas is free and open to the public.

It's hard to believe that Oprah is going into her 24th season. Actually, it's not that hard, as it feels like Oprah has always been around. Oprah is likely such a big part of the economy of Chicago that she probably has the Mayor in twice a week to clean her apartment.

If this is how the Queen of Daytime Television is starting her 24th season, how is she going to top it when she starts her Silver Anniversary season? Will she simply given a thousand bucks to every person in Chicago?

I wish I didn't live in a world where Oprah was in the position that she's in. It's sad that people care and get excited about her and her show.

For the record, Oprah doesn't 'give' anyone anything (cars, books, 'favorite things', etc.), manufacturers, marketing companies, and publishers do. She's merely a vessel--granted a well paid vessel--but, a vessel nonetheless.
