Garrison Keillor column provided break from bad news

I miss Garrison Keillor’s column. He was bright and thought-provoking and witty. Heavy reading in The Sunday Herald today about tax reforms winners and losers. Helps explain some of outrageous plan the GOP has for us and our money. We’re being scared to death with fear of nuclear war from two narcissistic egomaniacs in a very dangerous game and how to prepare for a nuclear attack. Really, duck and cover for nuclear explosions?

I truly do miss the escape of Garrison Keillor’s few minutes of normal storytelling. The phony showboat we have in Washington, D.C,. now is no where near normal.
