Harry Potter and the Pathetic Adults Today, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" came out on video and DVD. I haven't read the books and I've seen some of the first movie, but I don't really see the appeal of this crap. Yea, ok, he's a wizard and he goes to wizard school; seems like an acceptable children's book premise. But they're just that: kids books. No sex, no violence, no life changing events. You have all these adults who feel very proud telling you they've read these things, like I'm jealous or will think they're really cool for doing so. "They're really good, I read all four of them in 3 days," they tell me. Well, I don't care. In fact, I think it's kinda sad you're telling me this. I'd keep it to myself if I were you. Glad to see while men and women your age are risking their lives overseas, you're reading about goblets of fire and sorcerer's stones.
