Best of the Millennium - Lord of the Rings Wins Another Crown

Did you ever have any doubts? Was it ever in question? Well, maybe when some people tried to stack the ballot box. But when it came to the end the Good Professor and his books found their way to the top, like all cream does.

"In recent weeks, over 250,000 loyalists have cast their votes for the best film, CD, and book of the past 1,000 years. The winners (drumroll, please) are Star Wars, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and The Lord of the Rings..."

It is intersting to note that Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind was the number two book and the number four video. It is my hope and prayer that this is yet another hint to Peter Jackson and company that he has a lot riding on his shoulders. He may very well have the next Star Wars or Gone with the Wind on his hands. The problem is that if he screws this up he may very well have Plan 9 from Outer Space.

Thanks go out to Jan Wellford for passing this one along to us.
