Rescue Your Own Shire

"You won't rescue Lotho, or the Shire, just by being shocked and sad, my dear Frodo" (353).

Moral: vote Ron Paul or Huckabee.

(Who says literature isn't applicable to life today.)

J. R. R. Tolkien, The Return of the King. Ballantine books. 57 printing 1977

Frodo did rescue the Shire, but as I recall it, Lotho still got et by Wormtongue. But who made this quaint observation to Frodo?

Huckabee or Ron Paul today to be sure. But what about November?

Merry said that to Frodo as they tried to find a way to liberate the shire from Saruman's ruffians.

What about November indeed... The lesser of two evils is what a lot of people say, but I don't know.
