On ATC: Morneau wins AL MVP, Keillor on Altman and Snobates

Posted at 3:13 PM on November 21, 2006 by Bill Wareham

Much to my surprise, Twins 1st baseman Justin Morneau was named the American League's Most Valuable Player. Not that I thought he didn't deserve it, but handicapping the field I would've put my money on Yankee's shortstop Derek Jeter. MPR's Art Hughes is at a Twins news conference even as I write this and will have a report for All Things Considered.

Also, Greta Cunningham (who's filling in for Tom Crann) spoke this afternoon to Garrison Keillor about director Robert Altman, who died today at 81. Altman, of course, directed the movie inspired by Keillor's long-running radio program, as well as such ensemble classics as M*A*S*H, Nashville and The Player.

On another film note, MPR's Chris Robert looks at the so-called "Snobate" incentive lawmakers passed last session to spur production of feature films.
