Mark Steyn writes a clever column confounding Hillary and Rowling, and their books.
The link wont work (at least, it didnt for me), so the best way to get there is to go to the main page and then conduct a search for "Mark Steyn." It should be the first search result that comes up.
As for the column, Ill give it credit for being more entertaining and original than 99% of the other Clinton/Potter comparisons that have been made these last couple of days. I like the line about "Billy Clinter and the Philosophers Stoned." Nice touch.
Incidentally, I live about a half-block away from a Joseph-Beth bookstore. Last night, I had drinks with some friends at a local bar about a block away (in the other direction). When I returned home at a little after 1AM, I was amazed at how animated my block was at that hour --- little witches and wizards (accompanied by their parents, of course) everywhere! I read in this mornings paper that the bookstore had held a "Potter Party" with an attendance of over 2,000 people.
By the way, are there any "Potter" readers on this site? I have never read the books myself, but many of my co-workers and friends say that they have, and that the books can be quite entertaining for all age levels.
