This is a response to VC 28 John 2 ("Tom Bombadil")...

After reading your answers to Dimitry's questions on the LORD OF THE RINGS and your description of life at The Lab (A name I think Tolkien would have approved of as a site of evil Sauron-like doings if the good Oxford Don were into to high tech), I am once again reminded of how good a writer you are, John.

And it occurs to me that if there is any human I know who can claim to follow in Tom Bombadil footsteps, it is you, John (you even have your own lovely river sprite as a wife, Betsy). Taking out the negatives in good Tom's name - "bad" and the "ill" - I name you John Bomgoodhealthy. Wear your moniker well, my friend.
