Martin Milner, Nick Adams, Jimmy Cagney, Ward Bond, Jack Lemon, Henry Fonda. All gone now, but players extraordinaire in the movie made from the play, "Mister Roberts."

Frodo has been thinking, and all of us are aware of the peril involved in such activity. Frodo has been thinking about what the world may have been like had Hillary Clinton won the Presidential Election in 2008. Frodo, as many know, fought hard, knowing that no matter what, he would see Aragorn as the leader of Middle Earth, as long as McCain & Palin were offal.

Imagine, dear reader, what Rick Santorum would say to Mrs. Clinton when he started talking about family planning, or birth control. Imagine what she might say to Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia about vaginal probes and psychological examinations of female medical patients against their will?

Frodo does not regret his vote in behalf of Barack Obama, but damn, wouldn't that have been a moment for all the world to see? Frodo imagines it would rival the moment when Frank Pulver, Laundry & Morale Officer, placed a fire-cracker in the Laundry.
