Oprah Alamo

October 10th, 2010 is fast approaching. To celebrate 10/10/10 I'm going to run ten straight days of top ten lists. Hopefully, they will be of the tongue in cheek variety. I'm open to suggestions so if you have a top ten list idea send me an email or leave it here in the comments. I will of course give credit where credit is due and link tot he originator of the idea.


Oprah has tossed aside her hurt feelings and selected Jonathan Franzen's latest novel Freedom, as her current book selection. I think she should go even further to prove her forgiving nature and make her next selection from an author she has reason to dislike or hold a grudge against. Furthermore she could pick an total unknown maybe even an unpublished author to showcase her ability to find undiscovered talent.

And Oprah I'm gonna make your job easy. Remember when that group of Cattleman sued you, and you had to move production of your show to that out of the way town in the Texas Panhandle? What was that city called again ... oh yeah Amarillo. You prevailed in court but to show you are bigger than those who try and take you down you could reach out t one of the town's wanna be writers. It would be even better if the dude is a total carnivore to show you have no BEEF with Amarillo's citizens. I bet if you think hard enough at least one name will come to you.

And Oprah in case you have a lot on your mind let me toss out one hint. Remember the Alamo!
