Keillor and Altman Fans Rejoice!

I’m very excited, and it has nothing to do with anything online. A Prairie Home Companion is now playing. I’ve always been a huge Garrison Keillor fan, for 3 reasons. First, I grew up in a Norwegian prairie town (Sundre) that seems to be the Canadian equivalent of Lake Wobegon. Secondly, I started my career in radio. And third, he’s probably America’s greatest living humorist.

So when I heard he and Robert Altman were teaming up on a movie version of a Prairie Home Companion, I couldn’t wait. And what a cast! Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Lily Tomlin, Tommy Lee Jones…those are four of my favorites right there. Granted, it also has Lindsey Lohan, but apparently she’s pretty good in the role.

Not sure how many share my tastes, but if you do, check out the website.
