We, (Mean MawMaW) haven't seen the movie yet. Both of us have some problems with sitting that long so we are waiting (patiently?) till we can get in the home version. Then we can take breaks when we feel like it but I (not MawMaw) am eager to see it. I just finished the book "Nigger" by Kennedy, it was interesting but not as good as it could have been, (there could have been discussion of the viewpoint that if you let a word hurt you, you are then giving me a weapon that you don't need to give up) ... there was good discussions on the many varied usages of the word .... more accepted by black people than by white ... lots of good background, tho' ... all in all it's worth reading. I still don't have my library unpacked, about 40 boxes, so I may look for the LOTR and use that for bedtime reading.
