"amy knows best"

Postby DGA » Tue Aug 17, 2010 3:22 pm

Anyone familiar with the 'Amy Knows Best' site? It seems like a Buddhist-flavored DIY version of Oprah. (The Buddhist connection: the site's editor is an important faculty member at the University of the West.)

It looks like objectively good advice. It may well be a good way to reach people who won't be reached otherwise, to be helpful. But at first glance I can't see how it's much different from the DIY channel. Thoughts on this thing? Am I missing something?

    How foolish you are,
    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!
