The Jena 6 to Benefit From Oprah's "Midas Touch"

Well, here's some good news for the Jena 6 , if it's true. I was listening to the Michael Baisden Show and he mentioned that Oprah's people were reaching out to the families of the J ena 6 to do a show.

I am fully aware that most of the people living in Jena before all of the attention had 'settled' into their respective roles that no one should have been comfortable with. If Oprah enters into this fray, I hope that a mediator will now enter into this environment to restore calm. After all, when all of the buzz dies the folks in Jena still need to be able to live together. Perhaps the bright spotlight on Jena will bring these folks forward into time and out of the 19th century.
