    Maybe his senator, Al "I'm so sorry" Franken, can give him some tips.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    Garrison Keillor fired by Minnesota Public Radio for ‘inappropriate behavior’
    by Corky Siemaszko

    Garrison Keillor, the folksy former host and creator of "A Prairie Home Companion," has been fired by Minnesota Public Radio over "allegations of his inappropriate behavior with an individual who worked with him."

    "Garrison Keillor has been an important part of the growth and success of MPR, and all of us in the MPR community are saddened by these circumstances," MPR president Jon McTaggart said Wednesday.

    "While we appreciate the contributions Garrison has made to MPR and to all of public radio, we believe this decision is the right thing to do and is necessary to continue to earn the trust of our audiences, employees and supporters of our public service." ...

    Thanks for the link here, Bette. I didn't know a thread had been started for Garrison when I posted today's other thread for Matt Lauer. Geez. What a day. What a month. What a year it has been.

    Garrison Keillor fired by MPR: 'I put my hand on a woman's bare back,' he says

    "I put my hand on a woman's bare back," he told the Star Tribune by e-mail minutes after MPR's statement. "I meant to pat her back after she told me about her unhappiness and her shirt was open and my hand went up it about six inches. She recoiled. I apologized. I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me and not to think about it. We were friends. We continued to be friendly right up until her lawyer called."
