    So, I've not been very focused this week. Work's been difficult enough; mustering up the strength at the end of the day to hold a forum has been impossible.

    But as I was watching the service in Washington today, and listening to the song Glory, Glory Halleluja, I couldn't help but have this fleeting thought about how lousy the mix of it was. I couldn't hear a damn word. But yet I totally got the full impact of the song.

    So despite my inital reaction that the mix sucked, my perception at the end was that I had just heard a perfect mix.

    So what do you think? Thumbs up or thumbs down to the mix of Glory, Glory Halleluja today?

    Thumbs up.

    It would have had the same impact regardless of the mix.

    I was taken from the first drum beats echoing through the cathedral.

    Didn't sound to me like there was a mix;
    maybe just one mic that wasn't close enough to
    the choir. If you know the words to the song,
    it doesn't matter so much (or maybe it does, if
    you would be offended by them :). For me, the
    impressiveness was of seeing the gravity of the
    event: all these former presidents, political
    opponents, etc. etc., being so united and
    obviously sincere in their reverential sentiments.

    Was it the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," "John Brown's Body," or "Oh brothers, will you meet us on Canaan's happy shore" ?
