Oprah Winfrey held a $3.4 million fund-raiser on Saturday for Barack Obama at her California home.
As you know, I'm not here to talk politics. Instead, I want to call attention to this detail of the event: "Oprah's guests were bused in from a Santa Barbara fairground so as not to clog the narrow, estate-filled roads of nearby Montecito."
First of all, it is cute that guests such as Sydney Poitier, Chris Rock, Forrest Whitaker and Stevie Wonder carpooled together on a bus to a $3.4 million event.
Also, it is pretty cool that there is a community somewhere that does not like its roads clogged with celebrities driving around trying to get to a party.
I can picture the conversation among the Montecito locals: "Say, wasn't it nice driving through town on Saturday night? The roads were so empty. It wasn't at all like normal evenings when Chris Rock cuts me off when I'm trying to turn left at Coast Village Rd."
