and a thousand miles is ripped to shreds, most of that expanse will look the same as it does today. We will lose a few cowboys and some buffalo, which is very sad, but we have lost them before. Personally, I would rather lie in the backyard and let my mouth fill up with dirt than eat what they offer in France.

I couldn't agree more Mr. Keillor. You should go to Spain. I lived there for 5 months. You need to visit Segovia, Sevilla, and Granada to just name a few. You were wise at a young age to pick such a good place to go. It is truly paradise on earth.

"The Fitz," you run away and make "art" from having once known Minnesota. Many Minnesotans have done that. You don't know Minnesota any more than the joker Senate candidate.

I bet you are a computer programmer, foobar being part of the nomenclature. Actually, we are being visited by expatriates (one from Spain). I caught a cold plowing snow yesterday and they sent pictures out, but I got a wood fire going this morning so they can be warm. Minnesotans get tired of taking care of interlopers.

I didn't think we could find a bigger idiot and embarrassment to this state than Angry Al, until I realized there's Keillor.
