The headline is what started it: “Faces Of Sodo:…” (Puget Sound Biz Journal). I started with reading that’d as “Sodor”, then my brain ran with it. Perhaps Sodor is that area south of Modor where the baseball and football stadiums area? Because Sauron likes himself some ballgames to unwind after a busy day of global conquest.
It was funny in my mind. I guess you had to be there.
