Okay, here's the deal. If, dear reader, you post to Frodo, Keeper of the Ring, by Midnight this eve, AND if Frodo or Sam should win the MEGA MILLIONS drawing, then you share in the prize money. Now keep in mind that the approximately $600M only goes so far, but no matter how one dices it, we will all become members of the top 1%. In addition, what Frodo will also do is to walk right up to Willard Mitt, with his $600M check in hand, and say "WM, I understand that because of your Father's legacy that your investments paid you a paltry $42M this past year? You know what Frodo has to say about that? Well, WM, Frodo says 'Is that all?'"
Frodo would be very pleased to pay his taxes at a rate higher than that of the poverty-stricken Willard Mitt.
Frodo and Sam have been thinking good thoughts for the ASPCA, the people who fight ALS, the homeless, and everyone else who believes that Willard Mitt is truly a dork, or whoever needs a helping hand. Yes, President Obama will also be well-advised to take Frodo's call, even at 3 A.M.
So, before the Evening News cuts on, say a lfew kind words for the Hobbits, and know that you are in the mix with the Hobbits of the Shire.
Last one in the pool is a rotten egg.
