Hot Links: Bush's dusty veto pen
Posted By CNN: 11:04 AM ET

Dana Bash's article and the "dusty veto pen" report both mentioned the 100 hour burst of Congressional 'work', but failed to mention that on this first day Congress was supposed to be back to 'work', they have voted themselves a day off because of a football game.

Oprah has shown us all that to give to others is really what life's all about. One person, one place, one hour at a time. In my opinion, she should be proud. Charity, is not decided by a vote, it's up to the donor to give where their heart feels their money and time is needed. Thank you Oprah.

Good point xtina, her report also didn't mention that this congress and president have had an unprecedented amount of communication on upcoming legislation. The congress has been more interested in passing legislation that will get the signature than passing legislation to make a point, and get a veto. There have been countless bills that have been modified to get Bush's signature that would have been otherwise vetoed. This could be veiwed both as a positive or a negative...

Oprah Provides Ray of Hope to Africa

I have read blog posts today about Oprah with much chagrin.

In twenty years, Oprah has earned millions and gathered a net worth of more than $1.3 billion as reported by Forbes. She is a leader for all people of all races and creeds.

Oprah could have built an estate like the Biltmore, the Hearst Castle or the Ringling Mansion and had her name on the front of a tabloid. It would read, "Oprah Builts Second Largest Home in the US and Has a Staff of 250 to Manage It."

She could have invested in a Monet "Waterlilies" which sold for $20 million in August, 2002 with Sotheby's. Oprah could have purchased Monet's "Waterlily Pond and Path by Water" which sold for nearly $30 million in 1998. She could have purchased those as an anonymous buyer.

Oprah could have collected art, jewerly, properties and other collections just like our great leaders of the past with her $40 million. She probably has some of those collections at home or in her office.

Instead, Oprah is investing in real children and real people with a small part of her total net worth. She is investing in a future generation of world leaders for all people or all creeds and colors. Oprah has officially created her legacy in perpetuity. Some people with wealth have never given their legacy a thought.

I just want to know how can I send my children to Oprah's school. Wouldn't it be amazing to gather children from all over the world to study together and base tuition on people's ability to pay?

Congratulations, Oprah!

Congrats Oprah,

You have single handedly erased four days of bad press for the U.S. with the rest of the world. You are spreading hope and opportunity rather than bombs and fear. My hat is off to you dear lady.
