Tolkien. Grave. Spinning.

Loved The Lord of the Rings? My friend Barbara Nicolosi heard director Peter Jackson say that the real theme of the LOTR movies was "protecting the environment."

You read right. Protecting the environment.

Tolkien's epic drama reduced to a green ad.

Now this.

I, for one, am glad the great man is not alive to see what the LOTR profiteer leeches have done with their cash.

"Well now Sauron's dead and gone
For they did melt down The One,
And you might agree that Mordor is a mess;
But he had a plan I fear
To exploit the Palantir
For The Eye is seen each night on CBS!"
