And Then Hell Froze Over

The news caused The Washington Post to use an exclamation mark (even though, by then, no one was super surprised):
Oprah has forgiven Franzen!

In this, the First Week of her Very Last Season as Queen of Daytime Talk TV, Oprah Winfrey continued making headlines Friday, when she, exactly 14 years to the day of announcing her first Book Club pick, officially forgave Jonathan Franzen for that unpleasantness back in 2001, and named his new novel "Freedom" as her new Book Club Pick.
The Washington Post piece is here but, of course, the news is everywhere.

Nah, she doesn't forgive him; she is just tying up lose ends!
