Your regularly scheduled programming has been interrupted. Mr. Totten received by mail his copy of the extended version (43 extra minutes!) of The Two Towers, the second of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films. Lord of the Rings is popular in his household, and he and his wife are busying themselves with Orcs, Ents, and the battle of Helm’s Deep. He is not available this evening for blogging duties. He shall return shortly.
