Reader, I knew her when

This just hit the news this week: “Oprah Winfrey is joining with Alan Ball to produce an HBO film based on the nonfiction best-seller The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.

Wow, it’s like six degrees of separation. A. I used to work with Rebecca’s mom. B. I’ve known her dad for about ten years, because he is a writer, too. C. Rebecca and I have emailed! She once sent me a list of tips on writing for magazines! D. I remember when Charlaine Harris told me that Alan Ball was going to do True Blood. And we all know how well that’s worked out E. I have watched Oprah on TV, subscribed to her magazine, and generally think she is the cat’s pajamas. (And if she has a few foibles, well, who doesn’t?)
