      FWIW, I think the two are miles apart...

      One might read Pinkerton's article and feel he misuses JRRT but I
      don't think he's any further off than the folks who saw Tolkien as
      "green" - he's talking about what *he* gets out of Tolkien and how he
      applies it to one of the issues of the day.
