Topic: "The Eyes of Texas"
Stereotypes are hard to justify, but given the public record, Frodo believes that in order to be a resident of the State of Texas, one must be either 1). a fool; or 2). an idiot. State Senator Florence Shapiro (now there's a native for you), a Republican from Plano (an aptly named suburb of Dallas)has announced that the Senate Education Committee will not take action on the House Bill passed May 3rd.

The mundane little announcement is an attempt to derail the somewhat controversial "booty bill." The proposal would have given the state and local school districts greater authority to punish cheerleaders who performed provocative routines during school-sponsored events. When approved in the House, supportive lawmakers waved pompons. It should be noted that the measure also included drill teams and dance squads.

Ah ha, says Frodo, therein lies the key, dancing! The next thing you know, those Baylor-led Wacoites would eliminate Sweet Tea and other habit-forming tools of Satan. "Just look at all the terrible people who have put themselves on public exhibition in dance halls. Ronald Reagan didn't dance at all, even when he played a Catholic at Notre Dame!", said Irma Quisenberry of the Women's Temperance Union.

Frodo is reminded of the effort to come up with a new moniker for the City of Atlanta, currently still known as "The City Too Busy to Hate." How about a National Campaign to label Texas? "Virginia is For Lovers" is an example. To get the ball rolling, how about "Texas, Where the Eighteenth Century Never Ends." Another one might be, "Texas, Bring Your Own Books." Frodo is attracted by "Texas, No Nobel Prize Winners Again This Year."

Come on dear reader, give Frodo your best shot.

Topic: "She is No Ma Kettle"
Galadriel is the light in a mirror. Every path is brightened by her presence, every journey's end sparkles with her smile.

Galadriel is above all the jewels that lie beneath the earth. "There is in her and in this land no evil," spaken Lord Aragorn.

Galadriel spoke to Frodo and said "Even as I speak to you dear Frodo, I perceive the Dark Lord and know his mind, or all of his mind that concerns us, and he gropes ever to see me and my thought, but still the door is closed to him."

"For what do you wish dear lady?," saith Frodo.

She answered, "That what should be shall be. The love we have for our land and its good works is deeper than the deeps of the Sea, yet we will cast all away rather than submit to Sauran."

Frodo caught the light in the eye of Boromir, and from that time and place they travelled on, as Brothers of the Ring. The light shines upon their path.

Many, many happy birthdays dear wife of the farmer, so saith Frodo, so say we all!

Topic: "Rocket Man"
39 years and 624 hour-long episodes ago, Frodo first heard Captain Kirk say "Engage, Mr. Sulu". That was soon followed by the immortal "Beam me up, Scotty," and the irrepressible "Live Long and Prosper." For the first time in television history, a white man and a black woman kissed on American TV, and nobody complained. Uhura was somebody Frodo wanted to kiss.

The cable channel UPN, most famous for its' role in "Boondocks", wrestling, and Tyra Banks will tonight broadcast the last original episode of what is now known as "Star Trek: Enterprise." This will conclude 18 consecutive years of a first-run "Star Trek" series on the air. It is truly a watershed in American History that slips as quietly from our view, appropriately, since it arrived on the scene with no fanfare whatsoever.

Frodo loved Jean-Luc Picard, a Renaissance Man, a fearless leader, a guiding mentor to "Number One," who directed the emotionless "Mr. Data." Jean-Luc who fell victim to "The Borg," and who had philosophical dialogue with Whoopi Goldberg as a serious character. Jean-Luc, who was never ashamed of his dalliances on the "Holideck," made Frodo wish that he, too, had attended Star Fleet Academy.

"Worf," "Commander Troi," "Commander Spock," "Dr. McCoy," and "Captain Kathryn Janeway," are the other characters who penetrated into the imagination of this Hobbit. Frodo was not alone, for Conventions of Star Trek followers have been occurring in countries around the world for decades. Costumes are ever present on Halloween, and Frodo always gives an extra candy bar to a Klingon or a Ferengi.

Wizards have spoken of the universal appeal of the multi-cultural, multi-species assemblage characterized as members of the various crews. The common foe could range from something as nondescript as a "Tribble," or as ominous as a "Romulan." Oh how Frodo has dreamed of boldly going where no Hobbit has gone before.

Dr. McCoy died in 1999. Scotty, alas, Scotty has Alzheimer's. Captain Kirk is an overweight shill for some stupid Internet business.

Frodo is going into the backyard of the Shire to look up at the stars tonight. The Enterprise beckons.

Hear Me Roar, In Numbers Too Big to Ignore
Mood:  incredulous
Topic: "Take a letter, dearie"
Frodo remembers often asking a very stupid question. The responses he got were always polite, but the further he gets from the asking, the more ashamed he is that he ever put the words together. He knows now that the black man kind of liked that seat in the back of the bus, shoot, it is generally the widest, and the air from open windows would make it cooler there than anyplace else. It was just that he didn't appreciate being told that that was where he had to sit.

The unity of a people is what brought about the glacial changes. The abuses which took place affected all of them, rich and poor, old and young, man and woman. It was a unity that extended far beyond any comparison to ending a senseless war. It was a unity that we will not see again, no matter how hard we try.

In Georgia, it is now the law that a woman and her doctor cannot proceed in her best interest without a mandated waiting period. Today, the Congress of the United States has commenced an effort to restrict military personnel from front line duty because of her gender. Family leave legislation is under assault from business groups all across the country. Tax laws have been amended which have enhanced the role of the non-working spouse and increased benefits for families with a greater number of children. All of which is, to Frodo, a little bit of reverse social engineering. Somebody has made the judgment that women don't want to sit anywhere on that bus, rather they like that back seat and that's where we're gonna put 'em.

Which brings us to Frodo's point. Nobody's going to do anything about it. Because the infringements are piecemeal, and not system-wide in their implementation, they can be piled on top of one another, brick by brick. Men are worthless as fighters in this battle. The result will not be unlike Edgar Allan Poe, and the foolish man looking for "The Cask of Amontillado." The light will be extinguished and the chains will tighten around the chest.

There is no unity of purpose. There is no communal uproar. There is no consensus. Frodo sees a feminine landscape as littered as that of the Party of the People.

It is time to combine the two. The Party of the People should select its' next Standard Bearer from the list of the ablest, most determined, most threatened of our fellow citizens. It is time.

Topic: "Science Marches On"
R. Brian Langerhans, a graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis, published the first study ever done on predators as an influence on genital evolution in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Langerhans studied two species of fish that give birth to live young, which he caught in ponds in the Bahamas and in Texas. The study showed that males taken from ponds that contained predatory fish had smaller sexual organs--by about 15 percent--than males from predator-free locations.

Females of the two species preferred the males with larger genitalia, according to the study. While males with large sex organs were more likely to get mates, they were also more likely to be eaten by predators because their genitalia are a drag on their swimming speed. "It's a groundbreaking study," said Duncan Irschick, an evolutionary biologist at Tulane University. "Sometimes male sex organs are the only thing that distinguishes one species from another," he said.

Langerhans concludes the study by pointing out that the subject males have non-retractable sex organs, and that they wave them at females in order to attract them. "It's not so dramatically obvious to our eyes," said Langerhans, "but for a female fish, a 15 percent difference is huge."

What? You think I'm making this all up? Let's have a little decorum out there while Frodo makes a point or two here.

First of all, I'll bet the fish with the little weenies came out of the ponds in Texas.

Secondly, Frodo is very curious about the male fish whose swimming speed is lessened due to the perspective of larger size. Evidently the manuverability of the fish is not lessened due to the presence of an extended rudder.

Finally, Frodo takes note of a personal lesson in this very valuable study. Frodo is going to have to be much more careful around predators.

Topic: "Emily Latella Lives"
All of the major networks, and all of the cable news outlets are today reporting a lie. It is not true that the President of the United States has been greeted by cheering throngs in Georgia. In fact, the President of the United States has not even set foot in Georgia at any time today. Frodo has it on good counsel that the President of the United States has been out of the country for several days.

Talk about manipulation of the news media, here they are getting ready to close military bases in Georgia and cutting thousands of indigents off Medicare, and these yahoos are reporting that the people of Georgia are cheering. One of these fallouts from "American Idol" has even had the gall to suggest that the President's "fight for democracy" resonates with Georgians. Frodo says "Hooey!"

Frodo drove down to Dobbins Air Force Base, where Air Force One always lands, and he asked the guard at the front gate if the President's plane had landed in Georgia today? Staff Sgt. Alfonso Gutierrez responded, "What you talkin' about Man?"
Frodo did note that Sgt. Gutierrez was particularly secretive, and kept his hand over his mouth when speaking on the telephone, presumably to the President's Press Secretary, and presumably informing him that the jig was up.

Georgia is a "red state," and it goes without saying that given the comparative standing of SAT scores among all the states that Bush carried Georgia by a healthy margin. How confident the Orcs must be that they could formulate such a falsehood. The question now becomes, where was Bush? He wasn't in Georgia, and Frodo can prove it.

"Oh, that Georgia."
"Well, it is a RED state, isn't it?"

You Left Me, Just When I Needed You Most
Mood:  happy
Topic: "Eyes of a Gorilla"
In December, a group of eight rare mountain gorillas disappeared from an Ugandan Nature Reserve. Rumors sparked that the primates had been abducted by neighboring Rwanda in order to boost tourism in their National Parks. It has long been debated in Wildlife circles whether Uganda or Rwanda offers more favorable viewing of creatures in the wild. Frodo has always been partial to Panama City, Florida.

Last week the missing gorillas returned to their home in Uganda, accompanied by a new baby and another adult gorilla. Frodo was struck by the analogy to polite human society when a neighbors' daughter got "knocked up." The unfortunate young lady would depart for a "home" in a neighboring state, and return some time later with a perfectly plausible, although unbelievable, story about why she had this infant in her possession. Considering the events of the Jennifer Wilbanks non-story on all the TV networks, Frodo feels there is synergy here.

All eight gorillas boarded a Greyhound bus at the terminal in Duluth, Georgia, bound for Las Vegas. Once there, they headed south to Albuquerque, simply because it was spelled in as bizarre a manner as any word in their native tongue, and when repeated three times in rapid succession, sounds exactly like the mating call of some sort of jungle bird. Does, doesn't it?

One of the gorillas, a wide-eyed charmer, gave birth in Albuquerque. The father, she alleged, was an Hispanic male whose promise had been to elope, but whose intent had proved to be less than honorable. At this point, the gorillas called home, seeking assistance. The Ugandan Special Army (USA, for short) provided assistance back to their mountain home for all of the native gorillas and for their medical/spiritual adviser the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, Bill Frist. Dr. Frist, when asked to comment on the events that had taken place, responded by singing "OOO EEE OOO AH AH WING WANG WALLA WALLA BING BANG."

The commercial media back in Uganda feigned outrage at the investigative and transportation costs borne by taxpayers. Frodo feels quite confident that the entrance fee to Uganda's Nature Reserves will be increased to absorb the additional cost. This obviously mature solution far surpassed the activities of the monkeys in Gwinnett County. It does indeed prove that there, the animals are running the zoo.

Miles and Miles and Miles of Heart
Mood:  irritated
Topic: "Chew my Gazebo, Willya?"
The Havahart Company of Lititz, Pennsylvania, given its' location near the towns of Blue Ball, Intercourse, and Bird in Hand, is an Amish Company. The company manufactures live traps, and their primary distributor is Home Depot. Frodo learned all of this from his friend Pippin, who had amassed the grand sum of 38 trapped squirrels in his backyard in Northern Virginia. Pippin further instructed Frodo in the theory that trapped squirrels must be released at least three miles from the point of capture, or they will return.

One might reasonably assume that Frodo has, or has had, a continuing problem with the very cute, but very destructive extra-terrestrials. One would assume correctly. Given that fact, Frodo visited the Orange megalith and purchased a Havahart trap. Only after, however, his first effort, a slingshot, proved more destructive to the windows in the rear of Sam's house than to the derrieres of the tree rats.

The first night passed slowly for both Frodo and for Mick, the Wonder Dog. Mick, mostly Australian Shepherd, responds well to the things that excite his play buddy. Mick shot through the dog door that first morning to be first upon the scene where he was greeted by more teeth than he had ever seen in one location at one moment in his entire lifetime. Ophelia Opossum was thoroughly pissed. To this day, Mick will not go anywhwere near the trap, regardless of its contents.

Baiting the trap with peanut butter and a few sunflower seeds eventually draws in one of the intended targets. Frodo then has to place the trap in the trunk of his "motor car" and drive at least three miles to a suitable location to reposition his adversary. There are many options in the Shire. The local Catholic Church sits high on a wooded hill, and if it is an off-time for prayer, it is a suitable location to subtly deposit a new parishoner. A poorly located subdivision, where the residents tend to drive too fast, and whose children are particularly obnoxious is another favorite, particularly around the picnic area. Squirrels seem to like potato salad.

Ah, but the best is the local high school, directly under the bleachers of the football stadium. Frodo has provided the halftime entertainment for almost every game in the history of the school. The little buggers evidently get irritated at the bands marching around on their field, and try their best to drive the marchers into the sea. Perhaps you have seen our handiwork on Animal Channel?

There is a science to all of this, since the squirrels give birth in February in the Shire, and not until May or June do the little dumb ones become big enough to survive on their own. Dear reader, we are approaching prime time, and Frodo's bird feeders are overrun. This day we applied a little oil to the trap, baited it up, and set it conveniently close to the 546 nests located in Frodo's backyard. Let the games begin, and we who are about to be relocated salute you. Hail Frodo!

Odds Are He Won't Live to See Tomorrow
Mood:  sharp
Topic: "Dearest Bilbo"
"Mr. Frodo, please write that High School English Teacher and thank her, for both of us."

"Dear Mrs. Ames, enclosed is a "Blue Book" assignment that I wrote in a Freshman English course. My Professor wrote something at the end which I thought you might like to see. I consider it a very great compliment, and I wanted to share it with you."
" I enjoy college life very much, and much of the credit for it goes to you, and to Mr. Maranian, and to so many others who actually got my attention from time-to-time. I will always cherish the books, not least of which is 'The Grapes of Wrath.' I try every day to remember Robert Penn Warren and the definition of "greatness." These are gifts you gave to me, and to all of us lucky enough to be in your class. Thank you."

"My Dear Mr. Frodo, your very wonderful letter arrived on a dreary day, and instantaneously the clouds were replaced by sunshine. You may never know much I appreciate the words of your Professor. Follow him, keep listening, and never, ever lose that which makes you so special. Thank you, my dear Frodo."

Rachel Ames was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin. She was married, and had two children, Allison and Ashford. Frodo met both of her children, in passing, but he never met her husband. Years later, VANITY FAIR published an article which detailed much of the adult life of her family. The husband, it seems, was an employee of the Central Intelligence Agency, and he was an alcoholic.

About the time that Frodo's one and only letter to this magnificent woman was written Allison Ames, only a few years older than Frodo, died from breast cancer. Not long after that the anonymous Mr. Ames passed away, probably with no recollection of where he was at the time. Frodo supposes that the timing of his letter was as good as it ever could have been.

Rachel died in her son's apartment from a heart attack a few years later. Frodo did not know that until he read it in one of the books written about her son. Ashford Ames had followed his father into the CIA where he rose to a position of prominence in that part of the Intelligence community that dealt with the Soviet Union. Unfortunately, he also inherited his father's tastes.

After Rachel died, Ashford Ames married a very attractive Latin American woman, and he went to great expense to keep her happy. To establish and maintain the requisite lifestyle, he needed money. He got it by selling out his country. He got it by selling classified information to the Soviet Union. He got it by providing information which resulted in the death of more than a dozen people in different parts of the world. It cost him his freedom.

Frodo reflects often on the best teacher, Rachel Ames. For all the gifts she gave to Frodo, he remains most grateful that she did not live one more day. She endured the death of her daughter, and the torment of her husband, and her end came without ever knowing of her son's treachery.

Dear Mom, as Mother's Day nears Frodo just wanted to take a few minutes and let you know how grateful I am . . .

Sugar in the Morning, Sugar in the Evenin'
Mood:  hungry
Topic: "Sweet Georgia Brown"
Delbert Bland, the State of Georgia's largest grower of Sweet Vidalia Onions, commenced shipping on April 28th. Mr. Bland reported that he shipped 100,000 50-pound bags--100 truck loads--on the first day of the 2005 season. For Onion afficionados, like Frodo, the season delayed by cool spring temperatures has heightened the culinary imagination. Cookbooks receive much more than passing interest this time of year in the Shire.

For the uninitiated, the simple fact of what a Vidalia happens to be is explained by a brief lesson in geography. Life in the coastal counties of Georgia requires every homeowner to have a water filtration pump which removes sulfur from drinking water. The sulfur content of the water is so high that it smells like rotten eggs. Now, go inland 75 or so miles and the earth in the counties where Vidalias grow is virtually devoid of sulfur. The absence of sulfur is what gives the Onion its' sweet taste. The sulfur, of course, is leached from the soil and washes downstream in the water. The "shelf life" of the Vidalia is retained by the household consumer carefully wrapping each onion into a knotted section of an old pair of pantyhose. No salad should be served absent a Vidalia.

Martha Stewart, an alumni of "Camp Cupcake," is a fan of ramps. Ramps, or leeks as they are known by New Jerseyites and other Visigoths, are recommended by the "Ankle Bracelet Queen" in many of her recipes to brighten up the otherwise tasteless fare served in parts of Mordor. Ramps will put hair on your chest, or the soles of your feet, and mosquitoes will not enter into your sphere of influence. It is said that Eric Rudolph, the "Olympic Park Bomber," lived off of ramps as a major part of his diet in the five years he remained as a fugitive.

Ramps, again for the uninitiated, grow wild in the mountains of the Southern Appalachians. Many rural communities hold "Ramp Festivals" in the Springtime. It should be noted that these festivals are generally attended only by those equipped with appropriate hazard attire.

Ramps have become cult items. So much so, in fact, that the National Park Service is issuing guidelines to restrict the harvest of the native grown plant. This, Frodo assumes, can all be laid at the feet of the publicity awarded the ramp by readers of the "Dungeon Diva."

Frodo is very pleased that so much attention is given to ramps. Frodo hopes that equal thought is given to brussel sprouts, cranberries, cooked carrots, and haggis. Vidalias are for the good guys.
