Raw, adjective: 7. brutally or grossly frank: a raw portrayal of human passions

Garrison Keillor has another heart-stopper over at Salon today.

Somehow Keillor manages in his usual melancholy, no-bullshit, Upper Midwestern kind of way to draw plane crashes and rhubarb pie and urbanity and aging and regret into some lovely knot called Chopin, and in so doing, to reflect on the potential of the arts to stop us in our tracks and make us feel alive in bodies that otherwise get so easily distracted by economics and sorrow and summertime parties in the backyard.
