I’m not ashamed to admit that I look up to Garrison Keillor and Writers Almanac the way Horshach looked up to Vinnie Bommarito on Welcome Back Kotter. After all, we’re both English majors, and he’s done okay for an English major. But I have not come to praise Garrison but to bury his underlings who commited the unspeakable, the unpardonable and the trans-redemptive sin for English majors and employees of English majors.
I shall live through this, though I feel like a fellow who’s seen his girlfriend kissing another fellow. Nothing between us will ever be quite the same. There’s a certain amount of “sully” that will never wash off the reputation. But I shall get over this.
And so, I suppose, shall he.
Live long . . . . . . and proper.
