Eerie links between Harry Potter, bin Laden
And it's not even April Fool's day.
One of the comments in the article:
Good to see room being made for the news that really matters, Reuters.
The world can now celebrate knowing that J.K. Rowling is a prophet.
I couldn't agree more. Really, Reuters? REALLY?

I realize that there’s something of a Trek theme developing here. I’m sure my attention will be distracted by something new or something old looking good again, but for now, I’m just enjoying the ride. I don’t remember the last time I’ve even felt this level of fannish enthusiasm-I didn’t know I still had it in me.
I’ve flirted with a LOT of fandoms over the years (the one constant I always end up going back to being, of course, HP. I blame Snape), but there’s always been factors that kept me from diving in head-first into them like the source canon going into a new direction of sheer WTF (o hai thar, Smallville!), the fandom being too focused on one character/pairing that made me break out in hives (my love for Veronica Mars can only be compared to my complete disinterest in Logan’s Angsty Manpain) or quite simply, the canon being closed/fandom pretty much dead by the time I get into it (Does discovering X-Files over a decade too late make me *really* out of touch or coolly retro?). Not to mention canons I adore but have no interest in being fannish in/where the sum total of ‘fandom’ is a handful of Yuletide fics (Dexter, Mad Men, The Wire, Dead Like Me, Freaks and Geeks…you get the picture). And then there’s Dollhouse: it’s kind of lonely, loving a show that about 95% of fandom hates. Often, and vocally.
So, this whole exploding shiny new fandom is just…neat. Even though I realistically know the newness will inevitably fade and the traffic will slow down. But in the meantime, I’m getting in touch with my inner fangirl. Besides, it’s something to do until I get new Doctor Who/Merlin/Mystery fandom which will grab my attention next by being awesome and, judging by the pattern, possibly British.
