This is really good again. However, I'm not sure I agree with your note about magic in the real world. I do not believe that anyone playing with witchcraft is 'playing with evil'. That type of thought is what led to the tragic Salem Witch Trials, and the numerous other murders of innocent people, who simply had a special talent, or were at the wrong place at the wrong time. In the 'real world' 'witchcraft and wizadry' are talents. If people went about trying to murder 'witches' and 'wizards', then why aren't they trying to murder people learning karate, or how to hunt. Those could be dangerous skills, just like 'witchcraft'. Many an innocent village wise woman was brutally murdered, for the sole crime of knowing about the plants, their medicinal properties, and their uses as herbal remedies. For someone to say point blank, witchcraft is bad in the real world seems, to me, uterly pointless, especially considering you're obviously a Harry Potter fan. There is not a difference between fiction and non-fiction. Because of what you said, the church tried to ban Harry Potter, and people tried, and sometimes succeded, in stopping their children reading the books. Thsi really made me mad when I read that, as I, in my foolishly naive way, believed that Harry Potter showed the world that it isn't right to be afraid of the unknown. After all, death is a great unknown, and in the words of Dumbledore, death is but the next great adventure. I am really disapointed that you, who I don't know, but believed was someone worthy, and prejudice-less, would take this stance. Hopefully, this made some sense, and I want to say that I won't stop reading because of this, as while I disagree with your beliefs, I do not agree in punishing Harry, Luna, an Sister Marie Claire (who, I may point out, is more open than you seem to be!).
