"The boomers are getting to an age where their knees need replacing and their hearts need a quadruple bypass--which they feel entitled to--but our children aren't entitled to a damn thing. Any goombah with a PhD in education can strip away French and German, music and art, dumb down the social sciences, offer Britney Spears instead of Shakespeare, and there is nothing the kid can do except hang out in the library, which is being cut back too."
Garrison Keillor is one of my all time favorite writers and humorists. He has a brilliant, sharp mind which produces clever, thoughtful prose in humble and modest terms. He has published many books, several of which I have read, and hosts, "A Prarie Home Companion," the weekly radio show on NPR that has a loyal fan base and has inspired several television specials and a recent feature film.
Thank you, Mr. Keillor, for all you do.
