From MediaBistro's GalleyCat column today: "There was a moment about halfway through yesterday's Oprah show about If I Did It where Oprah Winfrey turns to the Goldmans and says that in the 13 years since the double homicide of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson, 'we've been able to move on with our lives,' and I thought to myself, wow, Steve Almond was right, she really is a 'zillionaire narcissist.'"

My favorite Oprah moment was when she had a woman who survived domestic violence, to which she replied something like, "Were you one of those women that never thought you'd get yourself beat?"
I watched part of the O.J. show and I was a bit shocked she chided them for not getting past the whole slaughter of their beloved son thing. This is from a woman who turned her dog chocking to death on a damn toy into a philosophical moment, her What I Know for Sure:
"Weeks have passed. And the pain has not subsided. Every time I think about it, my heart starts racing and I feel like I just got stabbed in the chest. It's a jolt, still. Gracie's death." [www2.oprah.com]
