Oprah Winfrey has decided to give $1,000,000 to the upcoming musical version of The Color Purple. Obviously, she 1) hasn't heard the three available songs from the official Web site and 2) enjoys giving money to disaster victims. We'd be more worried if $1,000,000 wasn't what Winfrey paid for laundry, but she can afford to squander some cash here and there. Alas, we applaud her for supporting live theater. Even this kind.
