Celebrity JESSE, KEILLOR MAKE PEACE By People Staff Published on April 28, 1999 12:00 AM Share Tweet Pin Email The war of words between Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura and Garrison Keillor (the host of public radio’s “A Prairie Home Companion”) over the humorist’s satirical book about a wrestler who becomes governor appears to be over. “The governor wishes Garrison Keillor all the luck in the world and hopes he makes a bundle,” said John Wodele, Ventura’s spokesman. Ventura had earlier said that Keillor “is writing a book, based on me, without my permission, without anything of my involvement … To me, that’s cheating, because they are cheating me.” He compared the novel — “Me — by Jimmy (Big Boy) Valente as told to Garrison Keillor” — to the illegal T-shirts, unauthorized made-for-TV movie and other commercial ventures that trade on his image. “It’s odd that Governor Ventura thinks I need his permission to write a satire of him,” Keillor said.
