And Now, the Rest of the Story....

My brother recently sent me an email telling me about JK Rowling's announcement that Dumbledore was gay. When I heard this I thought, "Wait a minute! I thought she said she wasn't going to write anymore Harry Potter books!" Either she has finished - or she needs to get busy and write Harry Potter #8. You don't just finish a book and then say, "Oh by the way....." What if every writer did this? Here's a sampling of what you'd get:

- Gone With the Wind - After Rhett left Scarlett, he stalked her the rest of his life because he really did give a damn.

- Les Miserables - Jean Valjean was really a woman, but had to disquise herself as a man when she stole the loaf of bread and got sent to prison.

- Pride and Prejudice - Mr. Darcy was rich because he had married several women for their money and then poisoned them so he could get their money and their life insurance

- Rebecca - Mrs. Danvers came back to haunt Manderley

I did read Twist's entry before I wrote mine, but instead of feeling like he did, I was upset so that was what prompted my entry. What really bugs me about all this is that now all those people who said that the books were evil have one more reason not to read them. :S
