Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.

If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
Read Hobbit and LOTR as a young teenager, read the Silmarillion in my later teens, read some of his other books too. Been "into it" for going-on four decades... and I loved the movies.
Yes, a certain license was taken... there's no way around that really. Film is not text, text is not film. Most of the changes he made, IMO made for a BETTER set of films that may not have been verbatim-true to the books but captured the essence of them quite well.
Jury still out on the Hobbit movies though.
