Oprah and I

We really are two nations, divided!  I realized it this week when I noted all the praise for Oprah Winfrey's remarks in her commencement speech at Spelman College in Atlanta on May 20.  Her remarks included this:

"Always be excellent. People notice. You go to Taco Bell and someone gives you extra napkins and sauce. That’s right, even at Taco Bell, excellence is noticed."
Of course, that just happens to be one of my pet peeves when visiting a Taco Bell.  I usually make a very specific order of "... and one hot sauce."  I then look at those extra sauce packets and napkins that I don't want and think, "what a waste - giving away the store's profits."  Funny how Oprah and I notice the same thing but think quite differently about it.
