Oprah Gives Away New Cars to Audience

When I first heard about this on the morning radio this morning, I thought "This is just a case where someone has WAY too much money to blow." While that's still partially the case, the show's audience that day was, for the most part, selected because they or someone in their family needed a new car.

In addition, she also gave away a four-year college scholarship, $10,000 wardrobe and make-over to a young woman who spent her teen years in foster care and homeless shelters. And a family with eight foster children was presented with a new houseful of furniture and electronics plus a $130,000 check to cover their mortgage and home repairs.

So, really, Oprah has my respect for at least putting money to people who could use it. Just the same, I would've liked to have been one of those folks, as both of our cars here on the home front are approaching 200,000 miles. Anyway, here's the Full Story.
