Signs the end is nigh

The Associated Press is reporting that Oprah Winfrey is getting her own TV network in 2009. Yes, that's right, the Oprah Winfrey Network, or OWN. It'll be replacing the Discovery Health network.

So, we can infer a couple of things from this. The first, and easiest, is that the world is coming to an end, so please promptly tuck your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye. It's been good knowing you.

Second, we live in a truly retarded society. Discovery is about to replace a network geared towards teaching people how to life healthy with an entire network pretty much devoted to making you feel better about sitting on your butt all day long. This is easily a market decision: Oprah sells better than health, so Oprah gets (this is still hard to wrap my mind around) an entire network.

Say it with me, just for the effect: her entire network.

Truly, a sad, sad society.
