The Writer’s Almanac: Garrison Keillor’s online oasis of good writing, common sense, and calm

It is rare that I listen to Garrison Keillor’s daily dose of poetry, literary lore and homespun wisdom: The Writer’s Almanac. This is because I don’t usually listen to the local radio station that carries it. (WAMU 88.5, at 6:50 a.m. !!) But when I do hear it, I am always transfixed, and vow to try harder to keep up with the program. So I will occasionally visit the web site, which offers that day’s program in print and audio, as well as a rich and rewarding archive of past material.

Too often, going online can be a hellish experience. It is nice to know there are some places in cyberspace where calm, class, and common sense are the ruling principles.
