There Must Be A Real Lack of Joy in Many Bicoastal Homes Tonight

Outraged Garrison Keillor fans deluged Minnesota Public Radio Thursday with complaints about the firing of the humorist over alleged workplace misconduct.
Some say they will no longer support MPR, one of the nation's largest public radio operations, which depends heavily on financial contributions.
MPR said Wednesday it was cutting ties with Keillor, creator and former host of the popular public radio show "A Prairie Home Companion," over an allegation of workplace misconduct. The network did not give details, but Keillor told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he had put his hand on a woman's bare back while trying to console her.
I confess this seems a bit lacking in harassment unless there is more to the story.  I have never understood the leftist enthusiasm for A Prairie Home Companion.  It sounds like a leftist's well-intentioned misunderstanding of flyover country.
