I confess, I love Oprah. When I was on maternity leave, 9am was a sacred time. I'm a big reader, and I've enjoyed many of books she's selected for her book club. And while my husband isn't entirely offbase when he claims they're all about women overcoming triumph, why is that such a bad thing? Anyway, I wanted to give Oprah a little shout-out for putting her money where her mouth is. BBC News is reporting that she's named the first girls to be admitted to the South African school she's spent $10 million helping build.
For the record, this is the year I'm going to get tickets to Oprah. The phone lines open today, so wish me luck!
