"It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my hometown..." Garrison Keillor first did his monologue in 1974 to an audience of 20 in a St. Paul theater. Today, more than 2.2 million people tune in each week to hear the tall tales and sweet stories about the citizens of this small Minnesota town. It's a town where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all of the children are above average." Keillor's monologues capture the nuances of country life and of growing up American with eloquence and subtle humor.More

I normally like these--I think everyone who listens to Lake Wobegon does so for the warm fuzzies and feelgoods (and, occasionally, the heartbreak).
I was pretty put off by the part at the end of this one about a group of naked older woman harassing an underage boy. Garrison Keillor was trying to sell it as cute or funny or something but... um. Nope. The lack of awareness made it much worse.
