Garrison Keillor: the downfall of a beloved figure accused of misconduct

(Part of the story and why it seems relevant)

................ Keillor grew up in Anoka, Minnesota, the third of six children, to parents who were part of the Plymouth Brethren, a fundamentalist Christian sect that forbade dancing and cinema outings. He wrote for the local paper, majored in English in college and started in radio in 1969 as a classical music announcer.

The New Yorker magazine published one of his short stories, which led to a journalistic assignment in Nashville in 1974 covering the Grand Ole Opry, a country music event which inspired the young writer to create a variety show that became A Prairie Home Companion.
