Speaking of Garrison Keillor’s Writer’s Almanac, I should post a little how much I like this short show. From the premise to the signoff of “Be well, do good work, and keep in touch. Â®” I just like it. (And yes, the trademark symbol is part of it on the webpage.) One of the things I like is that he treats genre writers no differently than those from the stuffiest portion of the mainstream, talking about all of them as equals.
Driving around over the holidays we heard an episode with a poem that knocked us both out. It was the December 30, 2003 episode with the poem “My Agent Says” (full text at the above link) by R.S. Gwynn. Good stuff.
