Mr. Keillor gets back to work

Garrison Keillor has written an essay for Salonabout his recent stroke. It gets a little political at the end (which I wouldn't object to, but his comments feel weirdly tacked-on), and he goes on at tedious length about how nurses are "attractive young women" with a "caring gene", apparently not realizing that some nurses are, uh, dudes.

Still, it's a nice enough essay... and when you consider that he had the stroke just over a week ago, I probably shouldn't quibble. Anyway, we here at Wordcandy wish Mr. Keillor the best of luck and complete and speedy recovery.
