Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

Much later. Your first guess was much closer in time. Looking at the Tale of Years, I think it slightly after Shelob's Lair chronologically-speaking.

Re: Too late?

I was just coming here to ask if it was a coincidence that this was coming up on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Re: Too late?

The most suspicious thing about the board meeting is the idea that it would somehow be difficult to find a replacement, if they genuinely objected to Maus but not to teaching about the Holocaust.

Here is a hint. It is someone speaking (or just thinking) to themself.

Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

I have found recently that TranslationParty either barely changes something, or changes it to something completely unrecognizable. After I tried one that barely changed at all and was too easy, I tried: You know, then, what this thing is? I got: It was Hector. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: And in ...

Re: Too late?

Possibly you should read it before forming an opinion. It's a difficult book to read, but it is both a brutally factual record and a brilliant work of literature. Perhaps, but it is not likely to happen. It is not a type of literature that I am appreciative of (meaning comic books, not Holocaust li...

Re: Too late?

Well, that book is not very popular among many Holocaust survivors, who find the animal metaphors doubly dehumanizing. I don't know the book, but based on what I have read, I find it very distasteful.

But I wouldn't ban it.

Re: US Supreme Court Discussions

I will be very surprised if Ketanji Brown Jackson is not the pick. The other name that I am hearing most often is California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger. She is younger than Jackson and has been in her role longer (it may be recalled that there was speculation that Biden picked Merrick Gar...

And yes, I agree that it is reprehensible what Republicans, led by Mitch McConnell, have done since Justice Scalia died.

Re: US Supreme Court Discussions

I assume that the "him" that you are referring to is Justice Breyer, who is reportedly retiring? In any event, I think Breyer ultimately realized that there was simply too great a chance of the Republicans taking control of the Senate this year and making it impossible for Biden to be the ...

Re: Nature Pics

I saw so many hawks today including one that flew not more than 5 feet in front of me while I was riding my bike. Wow! Obviously there was no way to get a picture of that one but here is the best one that I was able to get https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220125/f9ce10410ebd983ea35ecc2d66e23986.jp...
