Your RBR Word of the Day: leitmotif

leitmotif \LYT-moh-teef\, noun:
1. In music drama, a marked melodic phrase or short passage which always accompanies the reappearance of a certain person, situation, abstract idea, or allusion in the course of the play; a sort of musical label.
2. A dominant and recurring theme.

Is 2008 the year that the "November collapse" leitmotif is finally excised from the Crimson Tide? God I hope so...
