Oh, Great!

My wife just informs me that I share my birthday with Oprah Winfrey. Great. I think I could have gone an entire 46 more years free of that knowledge.

Just kidding. Oprah’s Ok, and even I find some interest in some of her stuff that my wife saves on the DVR for me. I think what I respect most about her is her self-honesty, which is clearly apparent if you watch her any length of time. Sure, she’s wrong, in my view, about a lot of things, but I note that a large part of what she’s about is demonstrating her own errors throughout her life, learning, and correcting them as best she can.

At the end of the day, that’s really all you can expect from people.

Alright then. Happy birthday, Oprah.
