The Times

The New York Times has a couple of recent articles about two Minnesotans–one of them no longer with us, the other very much alive.

The sometimes media-shy Garrison Keillor has opened his "spacious" St. Paul home to the Times, complete with color pictures of his digs and his family.  Funny what a new movie, "Prairie Home Companion" inspired by his radio program and directed by Robert Altman, will do for a celebrity’s press access.

The content of the other Times story is a bit stranger.  Singer Rufus Wainwright is about to recreate Judy Garland’s legendary 1961 Carnegie Hall concert, song by song, at the famous venue.  Mr. Wainwright is to be backed by a 40-piece orchestra and dressed by Dutch designers. 

Posters for the event even recall the instantly-recognizable originals.  Both shows next week are sold out, but the concerts will be filmed. 

How strange the entertainment world has become.

    Why is everything that doesn’t fit into the our local straight, white, Midwestern view of things seen as “strange”?
