Oprah Does Amarillo

It's the Queen of Talk versus the Meat Men, and outside the courtroom, master media manipulator Winfrey is already the clear winner.

"Would you mind saying that again?" the Dallas reporter says as his cameraman zooms in on the woman.

"What?" she says. "That we're 'hurting for entertainment?' That would be embarrassing."

"Don't worry," the reporter assures her. "This'll be airing in Dallas."
The woman, who is decked out in a black cowboy boots, tights and a denim shirt, shrugs her shoulders and gives the interview anyway. It turns out that she and her husband just moved to Amarillo from Denver, and the lack of entertainment in the Panhandle is beginning to take its toll.

"I'm acting like a redneck hick," she later confides. "I can't believe it, but I've been here three months now and I'm looking for something to do. I am hurting for entertainment."

Rose Farley is a staff writer for the Observer, the Press's sister paper in Dallas.
