Would you like The L to “weigh in” on Oprah Winfrey’s decision to end her popular daytime television serial in which everybody takes turns talking about themselves?
It is very impressive, we suppose, that a person is secure enough in her employment and plans for the future that she can give 22 months’ notice. I, too, had considered announcing that I would leave The Measure in September of 2011, to move to Copenhagen and pursue my long-term professional goal of living on government assistance while biking around drunk on Aquavit all day, but it’d be pretty presumptuous of me to expect there’d even still be a Measure in September of 2011, and not just an iPhone app that transmits Mike Conklin’s withering dissections of indie-rock dinosaurs directly into your prefrontal cortex in bursts of 12 phonemes or less.
i just want to let you know that oprah is on the verge (march 2010) of having her own TV network. discovery health is becoming the oprah network. don’t get too excited, folks. she’s is not leaving.
she is. not she’s is. woman gets me all worked up.
