Do You Think Sen Allen Is A Racist?


S.R. Sidarth had built an impressive record of achievements for such a young man: straight-A student at one of Fairfax County's finest high schools, a tournament chess player, a quiz team captain, a sportswriter at his college newspaper, a Capitol Hill intern and an active member of the Hindu temple his parents helped establish in Maryland.

Compassionate, As Not In Compassionate Conservative


Oprah Winfrey used her talk show tactic of springing surprises on her audiences at the weekend, when she told 73 girls who had turned up for an interview that they had been selected for a new school she is building in South Africa.
Winfrey has been working for six years on creating the school for disadvantaged girls. "I grew up with my grandmother. We had almost nothing, but my grandmother believed I had to give back what I received," she said...."It's like I am daydreaming," the Soweto primary school pupil told the Pretoria News. "They wanted someone like me who is not shy - and I talk too much!" Winfrey hugged Buhle and told the assembled audience: "When I asked her why she wanted to come to the academy, she said: 'It's my tomorrow.'"
