UPDATE On Oprah and KFC
Carlos works in Columbia doing HIV education/testing/counseling for the homeless and low-income communities. At his office they were able to print up some of the Oprah Free Chicken coupons and pass them out in the homeless community, shelters, churches and such.
But, when the coupons were presented to KFC, the patrons were told that there was an overwhelming response to Oprah's Chicken and that they, KFC, would not....could not....honor the coupons. They would, however, give each homeless person a rebate coupon that they could mail in for another coupon to be used at a later date for Chicken-and-a-Pepsi.
But..............homeless people don't have an address where they can receive a mail-in rebate.
Once again, out-of-touch Oprah, and KFC, have mucked things up.
