Garrison Keillor laments
in a syndicated op-ed, no small old fashioned feat in its own right sans a major name made with the written word, and with it reveals his epic ignorance of just how bad the so-called new paradigm of publishing really is. What the master of homespun wisdom doesn't realize is that nearly all of it is crap, its authors incompetent boobs without a clue about anything Keillor learned before he would write for The New Yorker. Nor will they. Instant in. Instant out. Online publication is the road to nowhere and 14 readers who all had to pay you to get a copy of your overpriced print on demand book that shouldn't have been printed in the first place. We agree on that. Nothing has changed. Nor will it.
