Love the Keillor quote. I also think that sometimes the actors are so bad, their badness makes them funny, if that makes any sense at all.

I'm with Iggy. Erma Bombeck is A++. Love, love, love her. But if she were still alive, I'd just admire her from a distance and let him marry her.

Love the quotes as always.
