dispatches from planet oprah

oprah's mad that anyone, the chicago defender, specifically, would accuse her of "snubbing" ebony publisher's john johson's funeral. according to her, she was in hawaii and couldn't make it back. now i don't know about you, but it seems to me that she was on vacation and i know for the fact from my limo driving days, that she has her own private jet on call 24/7, but she thought it was too much trouble to get back to chicago. and in my book, when you prioritize your own vacation over the funeral of an incredibly influential black person, who basically paved the way for you to be successful, well, that qualifies as a snub.
