      In the opinion of the Friendly Neighborhood Mythsoc List
      Administrator, it is relevant to the list to mention that a member of
      Congress referred to Lord of the Rings, it is relevant to the list for
      list members to discuss this in the context of what Tolkien said about
      applicability, and it is relevant (though silly) to point out that a
      real person's name is similar in spelling to one of Tolkien's
      characters.

      If the discussion had wandered into discussing whether or not the U.S.
      ought to be in Iraq, I would have considered that partisan political
      debate and irrelvant to the list. However, I have not seen that happen
      yet.

        Here is a copy of the poem, it is in The Fellowship of The Ring.

        The Road goes ever on and on
        Down from the door where it began.
        Now far ahead the Road has gone,
        And I must follow, if I can,
        Pursuing it with eager feet,
        Until it joins some larger way
        Where many paths and errands meet.
        And whither then? I cannot say.

        Hope this helps.
