Happy Birthday to Harry Potter

Since it's still July 31 where I live, it's not too late for me to wish Harry Potter, born on July 31, 1980, a very Happy Birthday.  Over on the Wizarding World Web site, and in the app, there was a very good story ranking all of Harry's birthdays.  Of course, his eleventh birthday was …

The English language is weird.

How can a word have two entirely opposite meanings, one good and one bad?  Well, the word Sanction is one that does.  This is a word that many people don't use at all in their day-to-day lives.  But its meaning changes, depending on whether it is used as a noun, or a verb, and depending …

Guest Blogger: Brian Watt’s excellent alternative disclaimer for “Gone With The Wind”

We all know that the movie, Gone With The Wind, was about the Civil War, and its effects on some wealthy families in the Deep South.  That movie is perhaps the best-loved movie of all time, and it is forever fresh.  Generations of Americans have viewed the film, on every possible screen, from huge IMAX …

Calling out the Wall Street Journal

I have been a subscriber to the Wall Street Journal, both print and online editions since 1991.  In the past week, I have come to doubt their editorial and news policies.  We have been reminded that the News and Editorial parts of the Journal are entirely separate, and mostly that has been true.  Since the …

Have another Very Harry Christmas

Welcome to Christmas time at Hogwarts Castle.  Harry Potter's first Christmas at Hogwarts was perhaps his first, real Christmas of his life.  He had been mistreated by his only living relatives most of the time, and had no idea of what Christmas was all about. [Editorial comment: There is no mention of anything really religious …
