LENGTH: 121 words of follow-up to an earlier debate
SUBJECT: Musical accompaniment on Countdown with Keith Olbermann


PORTENTOUS OPENING: "I see from the clip NRO Staff has posted below — that clip is here — that the Olbermann show also uses Bach's Toccata and Fugue."


NOT ONLY THAT, BUT: "The famous one in D minor." Also Beethoven's 9th symphony.


BURNING QUESTION: " Are the Olbermann people developing a theme?"


WHAT THIS IS: "Defilement"


MITIGATING BIBLICAL WISDOM: "But then, [the] music [of Bach and Beethoven] falls on the ears of the just and the unjust."
