Site campaigning against LOTR The Two Towers being called "The Two Towers". I put it here not to encourage you to join this campaign, but merely to point and ridicule. Their reason for objection is simply "The name...will undoubtedly cause a return of the emotions felt on Sept 11th which left so many people in the nation feeling stunned and in a state of shock." A pretty bald list of grievances. One can only assume that the authors of said site have not heard of The Lord of The Rings Trilogy and are assuming this title is one invented since 2001 and not by an author in 1950's rural England. It is the film of the book after all.... Another thought occurs: isn't it a bit late?

Get a grip.

Here's a more sensible petition. This young chap is trying to get Arsenal FC to organise a testimonial game in tribute to the late David Rocastle and to raise money for cancer charities. You don't need to support the club to sign the petition, but as far as the fans are concerned, I cannot think of a more popular figure the club could dedicate a specially arranged game to. Go on. You know it makes sense.

Oh Rocky Rocky...
