Oprah Invites Us on an Eighteen-Month-Long Journey


Oprah Winfrey officially announced today that her show will not continue indefinitely exactly as it is now, and the world reacted with screams and sobs. In her tearful announcement, Oprah said that 25 years felt like the right number, and invited her audience to continue with her on the eighteen-month journey to the show's finale in 2011. It's kind of hard to muster much excitement about this, because eighteen months is an unbelievable amount of time (you could conceive a BABY today and it could be TALKING during Oprah's last show) but also because, come on, Oprah is like energy: She can't go away, she can only change form.
