Thread: chaging the title "the two towers"?
You may have seen this, but try on the front page under "Is Two Towers Title Insensitive?" And then click on comments.... And further down this page "TTT, Will it be the Title?" A lot of people appear to agree with you.....
I agree with you too. The title of the book has nothing to do with Sept. 11.
TTT book was published in 1954 for heavens sake!
If you care to read the actual signatures & comments, you'll notice that out of the 2000 people (last time I checked) that signed, only a dozen or so were serious. Most of the signatures have been voided anyway (false entries due to fake addresses etc).
It's meaningless and I don't think it should be taken seriously. Even PetitionOnline (site hosting the petition) has released a disclaimer.
"Please Note: The Two Towers is the title of the JRR Tolkien book originally published in 1954, the second book of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The title was thus established some 47 years prior to the attacks on the World Trade Center towers, and there is no evidence to suggest that PeterJackson meant anything by continuing the same title other than faithfulness to the beloved Tolkien classics. Furthermore, the two distant, opposing towers in the Tolkien classic have very little if anything in common with the two matching towers of the World Trade Center. — PetitionOnline.com"
