The Oprah Winfrey Show - [BEYOND] The Diane Schuler Story

I watched the titled Oprah show, yesterday, and was struck on so many, many fronts, but the two I'm going to talk about in this post have nothing to do with the Diane Schuler Story. They relate to the portions of the show that followed that segment....more
