Garrison Keillor, a singular man of letters we as citizens were blessed to know. In this time of rampant change and lose footing, he was able, using only his voice, to take us back to a time that seems far away and yet resources where it matters, in our hearts and minds. If you ever saw him tell his stories it seemed as though he was transfixed, a conduit of memory and love sorely lacking in our time.
Comedian Lewis Black would say, when hearing of problems such as this, (paraphrase) It seems as though the world has taken a turn. Unfortunately, this is not a turn, just what is another in the ancient and cultural long attack and terrorization of women. To wit: Pakistani woman burnt to death, Brazilian gang rape, and an especially disturbing item, Gangbang T-shirt.
There’s far more to say, but not enough room.
