Like Scaling the UN Isn’t Enough…

Everyone’s favorite Oprah-tastic poet Maya Angelou is being sued. Allegedly, Angelou signed an agreement with a $2 million payout to someone who told her to go visit Mike Tyson in prison and then talked her into writing cards for Hallmark, or something. I wasn’t really paying attention, because I was too busy wondering if grappling hooks would be necessary for a climb up the side of the UN.

Anyway, some may say that this is what you get for writing Hallmark cards for a living, but you know what? I say that in today’s litigious society, you’re nobody until somebody sues you. Rock on, Maya Angelou. Rock on.
