why vetting matters

I caught a moment of the news coverage of Glenn Beck's little, ahem, party on the Washington Mall yesterday.
Anyone notice the background music used during Beck's booming, self-congratulatory introduction?
It was Aaron Copland's "Hoedown", an American classic that has become part of our nation's musical fabric.
Composed by a man who was Jewish, and queer as a three-dollar bill.

Next time, we can be confident that Mr. Beck will do his homework in order to avoid such delicious irony.
