I'm sure you heard about Austinite Robert F. Smith, the commencement speaker at Morehouse College this year, who pledged to pay the student loan debt for the entire graduating class.

Well, Oprah was the commencement speaker at Colorado College this year and she shared a terrific photo from the stage over the weekend. 

And someone posted this comment: "Should have paid off their student debt.  lol."

Ms. Winfrey, obviously unphased, had the perfect comeback: "Already paid 13 million in scholarships.  Have put over 400 men through Morehouse."

By the way, have you noticed that Oprah has been looking rather fit these days? Check out this photo shoot where she's wearing a burron down and a pair of jeans. And it just goes to show, no matter who you are -- everyone loves a discount!
