Keith Olbermann abruptly parted company with MSNBC tonight. Apparently his contract was either canceled or not renewed by the network, but the circumstances of his departure are not yet clear.

My only regret, with respect to Olbermann’s MSNBC tenure, is that I never made it past runner-up on his Worst Person in the World feature.
