Well, here you have it: the final episodes of the Oprah Winfrey Show have me writing again - the irony is I rarely watch the show unless my wife is. Perhaps I am "under a rock" too much. It goes without mention that Oprah Winfrey has done much good for others. Her success is a tribute to using mass media for good causes mixed in with the necessary fanfare of showcasing celebrity interviews and other persons in the news so as to keep massive ratings for the network. In the end, Oprah is a business enterprise, not to mention a high-profile person as well. The biggest guest of her own last show was, well, Oprah. Who wouldn't want her as a guest on their show?
So as not to ingratiate her, nor do I mean to disrespect her body of accomplishments, here are a few reasons why Oprah would have made an exceptional lawyer. First of all, despite any pretences, she has undoubtedly changed the lives of many people and shows a true affection and genuine altruistic interest for other people. I'm convinced that this woman has cracked the code and found the secret to being both insanely prosperous and philanthropic, wealthy and successful,having effectively promoted a;"business of empathy," an enterprise that ought to be imitated in most any profession or career. Practicality has its limitations, of course. And most in the legal profession most likely desire to aid society more if they could.
