"Therefore noting about A can be bad and nothing about B can be good. This is a cleverly deceptive tactic that has been applied to many things. Pro-Choice and Pro-life are two great examples ... If I am for one, by definition I must be against the other .... The definers will allow me no middle ground. Many of Crooked Willies problems were attempted to be explained away by definintions, (Depends on what you mean by sex - ergo - I did not have sex with that woman) Crooked Dick Nixon (I never stole any money ) somebody just left it laying on the table and I found it...."

I liked your viewpoint, right up to the judgmental* "crooked Willies and crooked Dick Nixon.." You just took away their middle ground!!
Even so, I gave you a recommendation. Krishna once said ..(and I am paraphrasing) No good man is without some evil, and no evil man is completely evil. So, too, hobbits, I assume.

*Just so there is no misunderstanding, the 'judgmental' reference is to the term 'crooked' - I am not agreeing or disagreeing with their specific alleged discrepancies, which I shall leave for history to sort out!
