DON'T Cheapen Beethoven!

Someone pointed me to the Beethoven's Birthday Google doodle, I usually use Firefox, these days.  

Starting with the fact that Beethoven was a young man in his 30s when he wrote the Fifth Symphony, to the rest of the stupid thing, it's a fitting artifact of the superficial, urban myth based untellectualism that the unformation age seems to have reinforced.  

I'm feeling grumpy about historical inaccuracy and narrative fiction about real people, not least about musicians, these days.  It could turn to grouchy.
