    GENEVA (AP) — Talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism while shopping in Switzerland — and the national tourism office agrees.

    I wish my problems in life were this petty and meaningless.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    I guess it's good to know that there is at least one country in the world in which everyone doesn't recognize Oprah!

    Not to mention that she was there for Tina Turner's wedding and stole her thunder with all this. What is with Oprah and high end stores? They don't seem to like her.

    It makes you wonder what kind of impression she leaves on you when you meet her, that is of course if you don't recognize her.

    One of my friends claims to have gotten into a shopping struggle with Oprah over a clothing item once. She claims it happened at Watertower Place in Chicago, at an upscale large women's shop that used to be there called Pennington's.

    My friend claims to have won. I don't necessarily believe that this really happened, though. She's my friend, but she has delusions at times, and should probably be on medication.

    So, I'm guessing "drama queen" fits Oprah better than any purse does.

    Is it racism is a store doesn't recognize you're famous and loaded? Is that part of the new definition?

    The purse in question is a $37,000 purse. And these people have the gall to lecture us about how we should be spending our money.
