Another Tolkien Question on 'Millionaire'
Matthew Bass

The ABC show "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?" featured another Tolkien-related question tonight. The object was to line up the following authors in the correct order from the earliest they were born to the latest:

a) Joseph Conrad
b) Charles Dickens
c) Jhon Lecarre
d) J.R.R. Tolkien

The correct order turned out to be:

a) Jhon Lecarre
b) J.R.R. Tolkien
c) Joseph Conrad
d) Charles Dickens

It's great to see more Tolkien exposure on this popular show! Thanks for this tip go to Gandalf, webmaster of the excellent Tolkien Downloads web site.
