    Some people believe Oprah is wrong in doing this because she's surrounding the kids with things they'll never really earn in life for themselves. However, these kids are poor and have absolutely nothing ... or very little. If you ask me, they deserve some pampering in life. Besides, anyone who's poor can have the same kind of stuff Oprah has if they work hard in life. People like Oprah and JK Rowling are fine examples of people who came from nothing and broke down the barriers that kept them where they were.
