On a lighter note: Detective Guy Noir tracks down the truth about the financial crisis

Last week's episode of Guy Noir (private investigator, played by Garrison Keillor) had me in tears -- of laughter, for a change. If you missed it, both the audio (best) and the script are now available at the Prairie Home Companion website.

Here's the beginning as a teaser:
TR (ANNC): A dark night in a city that knows how to keep its secrets. But on the 12th floor of the Acme building, one man is still trying to find the answers to life's persistent questions: Guy Noir, Private Eye. (THEME UNDER.....)

GK: It was October and turning cool in Minnesota and for heat I just turned on the news once in awhile—-

TR (ON RADIO): My opponent will tax the shoes off your feet and he has come out in favor of intersections! Imagine it! Right in your neighborhood! Intersections! Your children, forced to cross intersections! (STING).

GK: Me — I was staying out of politics. Not that I don't have opinions — I got a lot of them — but nobody offers to pay me to tell them what I think about the economy — at least they didn't until I got an urgent phone call last Tuesday morning — (URGENT RINGING) — Yeah, Noir here. What can I do for you?
Listen to it all here at PHC.
