Christopher G. Moore Updates: 7 November 2014

Dear Reader,

If you remember Garrison Keillor's NPR radio program Lake Wobegon, you might enjoy my essay this week as I discuss the idea in the current political climate. Is there an element of the Lake Wobegon premise that helps explain the current situation in Thailand and other countries as well? As a metaphor, Lake Wobegon has some universal lessons to teach about how we think about each other and express those thoughts in public.

You can read The Lake Wobegon Effect here:

Have a great reading weekend and drop me a note or comment. It gets lonely here in Lake Wobegon and a note from a friend outside the village is just what I need to cheer me up. I hope to hear from. And don't forget, in Lake Wobegon all the women are beautiful and strong, all the men fair and decent, and the children polite and helpful.

Best regards,
