    The Big Give

    Her latest show, having contestants give away money in creative but helpful ways was great! Some of them raised their own money to give away. Oprah is rich but there are richer women not known for giving anything away, let alone money!

    Not only do I admire wit and intelligence, I really don't much like talking to people who don't possess these traits. I don't think you have to be a rocket scientist to be witty.
