Although I don’t dig Oprah, I record her show anyway, “just in case”. Invariably, however, the one-line program description doesn’t meet my expectations, and I curse myself for having watched.

A recent show featured three “failed suicide attempts”. The first guest’s attempt involved a bridge-jump yielding no visible damage. Zzzzz. Fast-forward. The second rolled out in a wheelchair, showing evidence of her leglessness after a 30-car train ran over her. Her interview was Jesus-intensive, so I fast-forwarded. The third blew off his face with a shotgun. But when he came out, he had a somewhat reconstructed face. What a letdown.
