I predict it will all turn out fine: Voldemort and Harry (and a resurrected Dumbledore) and all their friends and enemies will all make up over a huge and scrumptuous Passover Dinner presided over by Dobby in the Main Hall. ;-)

I knew all that before, but it's good to see it in print yet again, and it's good to know this book is out there fighting the good fight, especially these days.

The Assault on Reason: How the Politics of Fear, Secrecy, and Blind Faith Subvert Wise Decision Making, Degrade Our Democracy, and Put Our Country and Our World in Peril by Al Gore
The Assault on Reason: How the Politics of Fear, Secrecy, and Blind Faith Subvert Wise Decision Making, Degrade Our Democracy, and Put Our Country and Our World in Peril

Al Gore's new book scares the crap out of me. So far the reviews seem to have missed the central thrust of the book: the Bush administration is, step by step, putting everything into place for a dictatorship if we allow it. And there seems to be nothing much we can do, since the electorate is so powerless. The future looks bleak; it's not 2007, it's 1984.
