Lake Wobegon a satire?

Funny how we interpret things so differently. Somebody commented that Garrison Keillor's tales of the Town that Time Forgot were his  satirical pokes at his provincial,  fundamentalist upbringing in Minnesota.  I heard them as a loving, funny tribute to those days. Probably because I come from a town that was a whole lot like Lake Wobegon and I treasure the memories.
