Petition Decision Derision

At the time of writing this, 997 morons believe this idiocy about The Lord Of The Rings:

"Peter Jackson has decided to tastelessly name the sequel "The Two Towers". The title is clearly meant to refer to the attacks on the World Trade Center. In this post-September 11 world, it is unforgiveable that this should be allowed to happen."

Even when the PetitionOnline.com website added this note:

"The Two Towers is the title of the JRR Tolkien book originally published in 1954, as part of The Lord of the Rings trilogy: 47 years prior to the attacks on the World Trade Center towers."

All is not lost, however. There is a counter-petition. Unfortunately, at the time of writing this, only 200 people have signed it.

*sigh*

It’s political correctness gone mad. You do realize that this is why the Roman Empire collapsed, don’t you?
