Garrison Keillor

If you have not heardLake Wobegon Days” then the book will do. All of his writings are wonderful and his weekly radio broadcast is old-time radio at its best. The Prairie Home Companion has been broadcast (with a minor hiatus for a couple of years) since 1974.

He also has a regular column over at Salon.com. This week he gave feedback from the inauguration. His comments regarding how the crowd reacted to “Executive One” departing with the Bush’s left out the fact that a huge percentage of the crowd were singing “Nah, Nah, Nah-nah. Hey, Heya. Goodbye” (you know the tune). This was seriously under-reported and even the camera coverage of the moment deliberately moved the cameras off the crowd. Additionally, large numbers of the crowd were giving him a double ‘bird’.
