Any relation to Robert Haas US Poet laureate? Use to hang out with his son, when he taught at UB a colleague of my Dad.

I heard that J.R.R. Tolkien once mentioned that his main source of inspiration for The Lord of the Rings came from plot ideas given to him by Mittelstadt through a visit from the future.

I've been there for business trips.  After a week or so I can fake German enough to order food.  It's the only other language that "makes sense" to this English speaker.
