Real excited, going to see Garrison Keillor next week and hear tales from Lake Wobegon!

From his 'site':

Dear Mr. Keillor,
I just wanted to tell you that you are one of my favorite liberals. I am as far right as you are left - but your show is so special that I can deal with the occasional political cracks. I love that you take us to a simpler time. I think cable news has whipped this country into a tizzy where absolutely everything is made to be so earth-shattering, when in fact the news stations are just trying to fill 24/7 worth of time. I think most Americans can agree to disagree without hating their neighbor. I wish you continued success with your show!


btw, for anyone who prefers a *fat-free* blog, please visit

That is great Karen! You know I am from Minnesota and grew up in Woebegone country. (Fictional town, but the geographical references are where I grew up lakes etc.) Oh I am excited for you. Perhaps you can hear a story about Carl. I always loved Carl.

Are you seeing a Prairie Home performance? I saw him about two weeks ago with Robert Altman and Virginia Madsen talking about making the movie. Seeing PHC is still an unfulfilled dream, though.
