Harry Potter and the Bush Administration

David Langford’s October 2009 issue of Ansible is available and has many fine news items. This one is remarkable:

A former Bush Administration speechwriter's new tell-all book recounts that J.K. Rowling was considered for the Presidential Medal of Freedom, but “people in the White House” objected “because the Harry Potter books encouraged witchcraft.” (p. 201, Speechless: Tales of a White House Survivor by Matt Latimer)

The George W. Bush Administration never ceases to amaze.
