Old habits die hard

Back in the day, Oprah's TV talk show was just as trashy and tabloidy (is that a word?) as all of the other daytime talk show's.

Then somewhere about 10 years or so ago she decided from now on she would only do "positive" shows. This move elevated her to class well above the likes of Maury Povich, Ricki Lake, Jenny Jones...oh yeah, and that Jerry what's-his-name

Flash forward to 2005 -- I just saw the promo for today's "Oprah" show: "When your identical twin has a sex change!"

Making a difference...Changing lives. That's Oprah...doing God's work!

Seems a little out-of-phase for Oprah to do something like this. I would be curious how many identical twins go through this procedure. With the greater probability of multiples thanks to advancements in science, I guess there is more than initially imagined.

Maybe this is part of a bigger slide for Oprah. Although she didn't get alot of flak for Tom Cruise's appearance, he sure did. Perhaps she' a little scared that now that Ms. Stewart is back, she might take viewer shares away.

I haven't seen David Letterman in a while, maybe he's not talking about her enough.

Is this the same "Terry from Knoxville?"

Yes, it is. I decide to go ahead and a create a blogger account that I would use. I was tired of typing "Terry from Knoxville" on everyone's Blogger accounts.
