I’m pretty sure the greatest writer ever to pass through the hallowed halls of Minnesota Public Radio is Leif Enger, who actually toiled from his Aitkin-area home as part of MPR’s Mainstreet project.
So it’s no surprise at all that he has coined the perfect name for the winter we’re having: “the khaki season.”
It’s also not surprising he found a way to enliven it, with this short video he posted today.

About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
