A Garrison Keilor McNugget

"A man at a laptop is a man at a desk, a stiff, a drone. A newspaper reader by comparison is a swordsman, a wrangler, and a private eye"

Garrison Keilor
Minneapolis Star Tribune
January 2007

Saturday morning news

My once healthy scepticism of the Star Tribune has now been replaced by indifference. Their revenues are plummeting in a metropolis where the residents share their political views. So..... I used to think it was their one sided politics that were precipitating their demise.... now I think guest columnist Mr. Keilor's quote best encapsulates their attitude toward culture in general. A culture moving on.
