A Very Harry Ending
New York Post ^ | February 20, 2007 | ANGELA MONTEFINISE

Posted on 02/20/2007 2:08:05 PM PST by CholeraJoe

February 18, 2007 -- HARRY Potter is not going to die.

But Professor Snape will.

Harry Potter will not hook up with Hermione. But his best friend will.

And Harry Potter will never see Dumbledore alive again. But Dumbledore will still manage to help him.

How do I know these things about the recently completed seventh and final book in the beloved Harry Potter series?

I don’t.

Like millions of other Potter-loving muggles, I’m just guessing. That’s half the fun.

How many beloved actors/actresses have disgusted their loyal fans by "breaking out of a sterotype" AND lost the career and money ?

Why is "interracial dating" on your list?

Somewhat curious isn't it?

Dumbledore is dead. As a doornail. Like Buckwheat. His picture is in the headmaster's office, so he is out of here.

Why wouldn't he be dead? He certainly did not fear death, especially if it helped Snape keep his cover as a spy.

Perhaps they are so obscure now that no one remembers ?

Or maybe more people will pay to watch nudity and pointless vulgarity than good triumpks stories ?

I think the code Hollywood once endorsed at least resticted the substitution of flesh for talent.

Hmmm.

I can think of some females with good girl images that took a hit - Britney Spears maybe but in general, I guess you are right - "good" doesn't sell as well as "dirty."

More murder, torture, kidnapping, theft, voyeurism, child abuse, animal cruelty, and interracial dating from J.K. Rowling.

Sounds much like the Bible.

Wouldn't it be rather difficult to date her impersonally....?

(Hm. OTOH, that sounds like a great bidness opportunity for Japan....)

The thing that bothered me most in all the books, besides Wormtail's arm being sacrificed, was Professor Umbridge torturing Harry. Those scenes just went on and on and on....

Umbridge is a surrogate for the Hildabeast.
