To: Garrison Keillor
Mr. Garrison Keillor, Hi. My family and I want to Thank You for your excellent views about hunters how they get drunk, etc. We too are sick of seeing hunters, they are so mean. After being awakened by a so-called, "Louisiana Sports-man" driving by in their camo four-wheel drive toy, I walked outside to watch the Doe and her two fawn twins that were jumping and playing in a circle. This Doe and her twins pass through our pasture every night, we believe because they feel safe from these blood thirsty hunters that frequent our area, every year. I want to commend you on your excellent views about politics, hunting, and everything else, we agree with you 110%. Every year we go through a living hell because of over zealous hunters shooting in all directions. Last night someone fired a shotgun across our pasture, ruining our efforts to finish our dinner. Anyway, thank you for being a true humanitarian and decent human being that you are. We listen to your program everyday! Sincerely, Rex Stuart and Family Our petition below:
