Bride of Harry Potter Mania!
Now that the movie’s been released, the articles are slowing down a bit, so Harry Potter Mania! will probably go on hiatus for a week or so — but you can be sure that local papers all over the country (and around the world) will be ready to run inane local stories on the 21st, when Deathly Hallows is published.
