      I don't know what you expect us to conclude from that, Mike - my own
      conclusion is that Frodo's journey was not that of a warrior and his
      sacrifice was not made with a sword. But I don't think that means
      Frodo didn't support Merry and Pippin in *their* call to be brave
      battling hobbits--
