Let us all give thanks (again) that the dastardly, vowel-hating pirates Littlejack and Black were unsuccessful in their banishment of the letter O from the language (more about this frightful episode here). Without the letter O, where would Keith Olbermann be?
For those of you who are not regular viewers of the Olbermann's show the Countdown, here's a short recap: At the end of his life, Mr. Olbermann's father suggested that he share some James Thurber stories with his audience. Olbermann was reluctant until he read the politically barbed very short story, "The Peacelike Mongoose" and he realized that Thurber was surprisingly relevant to a current affairs program. Now Olbermann plans to read a James Thurber story every Friday. We hope that one of these days he makes it around to reading Thurber's works for children, among them The Wonderful O and The 13 Clocks. In fact, we aren't too proud to ask you to write in to the show, making that very request!
Here Keith Olbermann "A Box to Hide in"
And in this episode he reads "The Rabbits Who Caused All the Trouble" and "The Unicorn in the Garden"
