Harry Potter wrap-up

Who was the character who was given a reprieve from death? And what will Rowling write next? Answers at the article on her Today show interview.

Also, Slate, including Brad Meltzer, has a good discussion of how to feel now that it’s all over.

    Who decides which books get press (Harry Potter) and which get censored? After all, censorship is becoming America’s favorite past-time. The US gov’t (and their corporate friends), already detain protesters, ban books like “America Deceived” from Amazon and Wikipedia, shut down Imus and fire 21-year tenured, BYU physics professor Steven Jones because he proved explosives, thermite in particular, took down the WTC buildings. Free Speech forever (especially for books).

    Aside from paranoia, do you have any facts to back up that it was the GOVERNMENT that banned these items and note corprorate identities?

    And btw:
    ” BYU physics professor Steven Jones because he proved explosives, thermite in particular, took down the WTC buildings.”

    Proved? Heh. That’s funny.

    Thanks for the Slate link, in which Brad Meltzer shows he should never write Harry Potter just as surely as he never should have been let near DC.
