So, the public figures have been tumbling, one after the other, as I sat over here and stalled on a blog post for most of the month. (Combination of 3 weekends away from home capped off by a family shared cold. Damn you, worn down immune system!) But here’s what I can say about recent events: Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out, sexual predators… mostly because I bet you’d like it.
And today I read about that most annoying and insufferable public journalist… Garrison Keillor. Writer’s Almanac… BARF. So breathy and over emoted! Prairie Home Companion… so under emoted and full of off key warbling and just boring story telling- I’d open my veins before I have to listen to it. And yet, people bought his schtick! How in god’s name I don’t know, but I saw this comment on an article earlier: “Not Garrison Keillor! Who’s next, Santa?!” And I have numerous problems with that comment, but my main one is to ask if the guy who makes you sit on his lap is the best example to use there?
Anyway. Tumble away, dominoes.

I liked Garrison Keillor, and tolerated Matt Lauer. Matt Lauer I almost didn’t believe. But that is the difficult part, hearing women’s voices and accepting the truth. We’ve got a start, and as you say, tumble away.
With great power comes great responsibility… a concept many journalists aside from Spiderman seem to have never internalized…
(Yes, Peter Parker counts…photojournalists are journalists too!)
