Oprah Winfrey's biography by Kitty Kelley hit the bookstores Monday. It details her sexual adventures with family, schoolmates, johns, TV reporters, black women, white men, white women and black men. Is there any wonder it was reported in Variety?

President Obama lectured Virginians for naming April Confederate History Month without mentioning slavery. It didn't have to happen. Slavery would have been peacefully and quietly replaced but the citizens of South Carolina refused to learn to speak Spanish.

President Obama invited Republicans to the White House Wednesday to discuss the financial regulatory reform bill which would rein in Wall Street. They're sure to block it.
