Not yet sure where I'm taking this blog, but I'm of a progressive/liberal bent and an atheist, so those topics are near and dear to my heart. And most days it feels like the US, or at least my corner of it is very unforgiving of those proclivities.
I’m not a big Harry Potter fan - not that I dislike the books (never read them) or the movies (saw about half of them). I just never got hooked into the mythos. BUT I have to say that young Daniel Radcliffe just became cooler in my estimation.
