Anchor aweigh: bye bye, Dan

Rather leaves "courage" echoing on the wind.

But, "Kenneth, what is the frequency?"

No more will Sauron's dark eye . . .
. . . be Rather's.

As Tolkien said through Gandalf: "Other evils there are that may come; for Sauron is himself but a servant or emissary. Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succor of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they may have is not ours to rule." (Return of the King, p. 190)

The Dark Lord is fallen. Courage!

I have never read anything by Tolkien, but I liked that quote. Perhaps it would be worth memorizing!
