    LOL. I am spoiled. I have nearly 5000 books. Most were free or about a buck. The 800 pager was three bucks.

    So this goes on the list. Once I have read everything else on the Crusades I have, I will spend nearly 13 bucks.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    What's interesting to me is about theLord of the Rings is that, while it inspired so much of the fantasy genre that evangelicals like my mom despised, it's a Christian and specifically Roman Catholic allegory. Weird.

    I never actually read the trilogy but I did read The Hobbit.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.
