Oprah Gifts Macon

By now, unless you've been under a rock, you know that Oprah came to Macon for her annual "Favorite Things" show. The show aired today, and below is a list of the items show guests received. Not too shabby! Manufacturers fight to get their products on the list. The 300 samples they provide for the show is a small price to pay for the positive PR.

And, since you asked, HARPO is paying the tax on the gifts for the 300 guests, and recipients simply will have to pay tax on the tax paid on their behalf. Got that Glenn? Also, Oprah loved Macon so much that there will be another show about Macon next week. No more gifts, but she will be highlighting some of the places she visited while she was here. You can't buy that kind of PR, and all for nearly half of us Maconites tuning in to Oprah every day.
