Keillor was, for decades, host of A Prairie Home Companion, and until just recently, The Writer's Almanac. NPR announced this morning that he had been fired over "allegations of misconduct." According to Keillor, the incident was over patting a woman on the back and his hand slipping "about six inches" down under her garment. https://www.washingtonpost.com/life...a1256c-d52c-11e7-b62d-d9345ced896d_story.html Minnesota Public Radio has refused to comment. It might be worth noting, as well, that Keillor made some public comments in defense of Al Franken in light of his own alleged misconduct, which were published just before the lawyer for the woman alleging inappropriate behaviour contacted Keillor's employer. Personally, I don't know, and I don't want to come off as claiming to know one way or the other about what is going on here. On the surface, Keillor's account strikes me as a little weird, seeing as how I've never had my hand accidentally slip six inches under someone's clothes, also, I'm not sure how patting someone on the back, as Keillor seems to be hinting was a sort of "there there" gesture, could be taken as a sexual advance, even if some clumbsiness happened. With public figures being accused of stuff like this, we don't need to know the identity of the victim, or alleged victim, if you will, but it would be nice to know some basic information about what was alleged, if corrective action is taken, and if the alleged transgression(s) are too loosely supported to provide these details, maybe the person should be suspended rather than fired outright, until things can be investigated. To be frank, you nnever want to take sides in a he-said/she-said issue like this until there are some facts, as in something to which both parties agree, something substantiated by evidence, or even a preponderance of testimonies that provide a consistent story. Maybe my opinion is out of bounds in today's day and age, though.
