Well, dammit. Looks like Garrison Keillor, host of the popular public radio show A Prairie Home Companion and author of a series of books about a fictional town Lake Wobegon is the latest in the sexual harrasment debacle sweeping the nation.

From the source



Garrison Keillor, the creator and former host of A Prairie Home Companion, has been accused of inappropriate behavior with someone who worked with him, according to Minnesota Public Radio, which has announced it is cutting ties with Keillor and his production company.


Another one bites the dust. This one hits mw the hardest. I loved PHC and The Writer's Almanac on NPR.




The radio personality later told the Star Tribune that he was not, in general, physically demonstrative, and that the incident that led to his firing involved touching a woman's bare skin. "I meant to pat her back after she told me about her unhappiness and her shirt was open and my hand went up it about six inches," he said. "She recoiled. I apologized."

"If I had a dollar for every woman who asked to take a selfie with me and who slipped an arm around me and let it drift down below the beltline, I'd have at least a hundred dollars. So this is poetic irony of a high order," Keillor later said

Can only imagine what dirty little secrets are buried in that little "fictional town".

I never really read any of the books. Pretty sure a lot of PHC had excerpts from them though.

My wife calls me an old man because I like the writer's almanac.

From the washington post.




 I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me and not to think about it. We were friends. We continued to be friendly right up until her lawyer called."

Can't find amy info stating that at the moment.

So did she just jump on the train? Time will tell if more women come forward

This is probably the most disturbing allegation to me...I loved listening to PHC, still do sometimes. The humor is just so... down home and gentle.

Oh well... I guess there's a utopia/dystopia in everything.

Ahha, but your mood says Love, therefore in the court of public opinion, he has a case !!

Oh you may protest, "What's love got to do, got to do with it?" and you may have a point... For who needs a heart, when a heart can be broken

His heavy sighing into the mircophone were enough to give me the creeps.

But... yeah, this is all getting out of hand. Who is next?

This whole thing smacks of witch hunt. I didn't believe Cosby until there were over ten accusers. This, I may not believe at all!

It may seem to you that I'm acting confused when he's close to me. If I tend to look dazed I've read it someplace. I've got cause to be. There's a name for it. There's a phrase that fits but whatever the reason he does it for me ooooo.

That's not incriminating at all. Racist.

Yeah, I was upset about Louis, but it made sense. This just kind of breaks my heart.
