The Last Harry Potter Picture

This afternoon we ventured out to Colonie Center to catch the 2pm showing of the last Harry Potter movie. I love CC's theater! The seating arrangement is excellent. the digital screen is smashing. (The only horrible part was a bunch of previews OVERLY LOUD that hurt everyone's ears and likely made them NOT want to see any of the preview pix!)

As folks filed into the theater, a young husband and wife came in. They met for the first time at the first HP movie, chanced to meet again at one of the local midnight book release events (remember those?) and they married last year. They had tears in their eyes when I talked with them about what it means to be here for the last HP installment.

For parents and kids of all ages, those book releases and the series of movies no doubt made indelible memories along the clock of life. Thank you JK Rowling, wherever you are, and thanks to the creators and cast of the HP movies.

I never read a single HP book (didn't have time) but the very first HP movie, the Goblet of Fire and Prisoner of Azkeban are my three favourites. Should I ever see one of those three in book form, perhaps at a garage sale, I'll pick it up.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
