1. Oprah was on the TV in the men's locker room at the Y yesterday. What's worse is that a guy was sitting there watching it. She was conducting a heartfelt interview with CNN softy Anderson Cooper. I hate to verbalize unspoken rules, but the men's locker room TV is for sports, news, and TNT movies. Period. And the last two are really just stop-gaps until the next game comes on. Nothing on any of the acceptable channels? Switch to ESPN and watch a rodeo or whatever. BUT NO OPRAH IN THE LOCKER ROOM.
2. One of the commercials during Oprah's show pimped the newest act of musical terrorism perpetrated by Michael Bolton: An album of Sinatra covers. Who the hell allowed this? Isn't there some government office looking out for this type of treachery? If Bolton wants to swing a Sinatra tune while he's the shower, that's fine. But setting his bullmoose of a voice to the Chairman has to be illegal. Didn't they cover that in the Patriot Act?
