Will I Miss Oprah?

Ms Oprah Winfrey has announced that she will "dim the lights on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" at the close of its 25th season in late 2011.

Well, blow me down. She's a clever one. Quit whil the going is good. Quit while you're still riding high.

Truthfully, and I hate to admit it...I will kinda miss her. I think she has been so much a part of our lives -- whether you like it or not.

Of course, it's not that I need her like a drug. I do not make a point of turning her on, if that's what you're thinking. But, well, I do enjoy Oprah whenever she's on.

The lady is smart and very enterprising. For her to be able to survive the industry and be as big as she is now, takes a lot, I tell ya.

She is iconic and is an inspiration to a lot of people.

I'm sure her star will continue to shine.

All about her announcement HERE.

Obama: Guantanamo To Close Next Year

This is good news. I hope this will really happen.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he believes the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, can be closed next year, but he acknowledged that he will not meet his original January deadline.

Obama said he was not disappointed that he would not meet the one-year deadline he set upon taking office last January because, he said, "I knew this was going to be hard."

He made the comment in Beijing in an interview to be aired on Fox News Channel's "Special Report with Bret Baier" later on Wednesday.

"We are on a path and a process where I would anticipate that Guantanamo will be closed next year," Obama said, declining to name a specific date for when the prison will be closed.

The Obama administration has had difficulty in closing the prison because many U.S. lawmakers are deeply reluctant to transferring the prisoners there to the United States.

"It's hard not only because of the politics. People I think understandably are fearful after a lot of years where they were told that Guantanamo was critical to keeping terrorists out. So, I understood that that had to be processed, but it's also just technically hard -- I just think as usual in Washington things move slower than I anticipated," Obama said.

Give It Up, Tee Keat & Soi Lek..

I think the MCA is going to the dogs.

I cannot believe the shenanigans of these party leaders -- fr4om Datuk Ong Tee Keat, Datuk Dr Chua Soi Lek right down to everyone who've been quoted in the media -- mainstream and online!

Like a bunch of puerile brats who insist on getting their own way.

Listen, fellas. You guys are in deep shit, you hear.

You're gonnat take down the Barisan Nasional with you. So stop it already!

I so agree with the Third Force or whatchamacallit -- looks like you can't handle it, guys. You need the big man himself.

Yep. It's got to that point. Now, don't go blaming everyone else but yourselves!

But before, big man Najib sits down and help you clean house -- I agree with so many people that Tee keat and Soi Lek have got to give it up!
