Potter enthusiasts v. literary nose-holders.

I wasn’t going to post anything about That Book and That Phenomenon, as you can find all you need on that subject in other places, but I read this article this morning and knew that there would be a huge shitstorm sandwich with chips waiting for me when I got home.  Sure enough, as indicated by Sterne, there’s about 400,000 comments in both directions.  My unscientific tally shows that about 1/3 of the arguments on either side are relatively well-reasoned; there’s a whole lot of red faces and declarations of evil and taking-it-personally.  At least people are getting hot under the collar over books.
