      Good grief, is THIS what Tolkien scholarship is coming to?
      Jackson's movie dialogue being cited on the laughable
      assumption that it has even a _whit_ of value to scholars
      studying JRR Tolkien's thought, and held up as _superior_
      to Tolkien's own writing no less? In an article purporting
      to be about _Tolkien's_ "The Lord of the Rings"?

      God help us if this is the shape of things to come.
