Recently The Chronicle published a letter condemning the Harry Potter books. It was from a very clever fellow who admitted he had not read them.
I received them from my daughter and her 11-year-old son. I took the trouble to read them and found them to be a lot of fun. Justice triumphs over evil. No profanity, no sex. Just about like Little Orphan Annie, Tom Mix, Superman, Dick Tracy and Gene Autry. I highly recommend them to anyone who likes good fiction.
