The Real World

Harry Potter fandom insanity seems all the more stupid in the face of knowing that someone on my friends list has just suffered a bereavement. I see all this HP wank going on over some fan who, if you ask me, isn't worth the excessive attention being paid to her antics, and the amount of time and energy that is being spent nattering about the whole fandom thing is pathetic.

But here's something real going on, that really matters. And I'm noticing that it's harder to express sadness than it is to express outrage.

I know the fandom wank really matters, too, to the people directly involved. But I think a mother's pain rather outstrips that.

PETA: And, as if Potter nonsense weren't enough, here is some PETA nonsense.
