Privacy concerns of Middle-Earth

"Yesterday Wizardleaks obtained a secret document sent between the Wizard Gandalf and Galadriel, the Lady of Lothlórien. It confirms the suspicions that Sauron has been using a Seeing Stone, a Palantír, to gather intelligence but also shows that he may not be the only leader in Middle-Earth doing so."

Man dressed as Orc accused of biting a boy in Sweden

Today, 29 May 2013, a rather odd Tolkien related news story spread through Sweden and I felt like I had to summarize it in English for you.

Men dressed up as Orcs are a recurring attraction at the Medieval Fair in Leksand, Sweden, and are meant to play with the children, supposedly while their parents are away doing less amusing things (shopping). However, this year something must have gone either very wrong or exactly according to plan. Apparently one of the Orcs has been reported to the police for assault on an 11-year old child.
