It wasn’t just the power outage yesterday during Oprah’s speech on the Maya Angelou forever stamp that’s making people upset. The stamp, which was championed by many like Ohio’s Rep. Joyce Beatty, was unveiled yesterday. But there’s one problem: the quote on the stamp isn’t from Angelou.

Kobie Marquise Stillwell was driving an Audi A6 at 116 mph when he collided with a Toyota Camry at the intersection of Morse and Sunbury roads near Easton Town Center on October 12.

Two people in the Camry were killed: Kumari Biswakarma (driver), 40, of the Northeast Side, and her 24-year-old daughter Anju Biswakarma, reports The Dispatch. Kumari's 22-year-old daughter, Srijana Biswakarma, was hospitalized with severe injuries.
