Harry Potter 1, Death-Eaters 0

SUWANEE, Ga. — The Gwinnett County school board voted last night to reject a parent's pleas to take Harry Potter books out of school libraries. The mother of three elementary school students claims the books promote witchcraft.

"At the very heart of this issue is censorship," board member Carole Boyce said before the unanimous vote. "Our students do understand the difference between fact and fiction."

I reported on this earlier,, and I'm glad to see common sense prevailed.
