News, Articles, Generally Good Stuff

First, two great new editorials on Mugglenet.  The first one, "One Last Memory", took someone a lot of time and a lot of thought.  I don't know that I agree with all of it, but the sheer magnitude is impressive.  The second one, "Elves Are the Answer", is smart, smart, smart.  I completely agree with the author--there is way more to those little guys than we think.

Secondly, a nice news article which I really liked for it's discussion of the adult fans.  (You know who you are!)  For example:

"In my office there are several Potter fanatics. They're mostly closet crazies who wear their 'I Speak Parseltongue' T-shirts behind closed doors, if you know what I'm saying.

"But I know who they are. They gave me an excited wink when the release date was announced. They're planning to call in sick on July 21."

Third, a new blog--The Quibbler.  In short, it's the Leaky Cauldron light, which--while probably not for me--might be good for someone who likes to keep up, but doesn't necessarily need to know every single time every minor character is mentioned in the news.
