Dear Mr. Keillor: I was

February 2, 2005 |

Dear Mr. Keillor:
I was excited on January 22 when you commented on the -54 degrees in Embarrass MN but very disappointed to hear you say that Embarrass also held the state low record of -60. Tower MN holds that record. Tower is just 10 miles from Embarrass and there is quite the competition between these two towns for the low temperature. Tower (pop. 400) needs to hold on to its claim to fame. I am from Tower and have a cabin on Lake Vermillion and I depend on you to help our little town keep in the news with its state-record low temp.

With warm regards,
Pauline Housenga

Pauline, I apologize for the mistake, and if you want to tell people that you are embarrassed to listen to "A Prairie Home Companion" because the ignorance of the host is simply towering, I would forgive you. My face is vermillion.
