Culture Lust by Angela Carone

Apparently, Garrison Keillor has a stalker -- and she sounds really crazy. According to The Smoking Gun , a 43-year-old Georgia woman went to a taping of A Prairie Home Companion and has been professing her love to host Keillor ever since.

She has sent him "perfumed packages at work containing, among other things, 'a petrified alligator's foot, dead beetles...rocks, marbles' and magnets." The magnets had hers and Keillor's initials on them. What a loon.

Keillor has wisely gotten a restraining order.

RE: the alcohol beach ban. An alcohol beach ban would just cause those who want to get drunk to do so at home or in bars and THEN go to the beaach. I'd rather see fines and punishments for under-the-influence offenses (public intoxication, indecent exposure, public urination, fighting, even litter) increased so much that they'd either curb the problem or drive the obnoxious drunks off the beach, out of the parks etc. (problem isn't JUST at the beach) If they want to get drunk they'd have to stay home or risk HUGE fines. And those fines could be used to pay for the additional enforcement costs, including paying for extra security and clean-up on the major holidays that are always such a problem. Civilized people should be able to have a glass of wine at sunset. The uncivilized and immature should not be able to consume cases of beer and then cause problems for others. -----

An alcohol-beach ban would certain keep Garrison Keillor's stalker at bay.
