Quick Question

Yes, Dumbledore has been outed - by no lesser being than JK herself.

According to the news story there has been significant speculation regarding this small detail on the fan sites and the rumors were confirmed yesterday.

So ... well it explains something I didn't really understand regarding Dumbledore putting up with a twit like Gellert Grindelwald but ... well I am just wondering if confirming the rumor actually just makes up for some poor writing in that section. It appeared a little disjointed part of the book (although we are all forgiving to sections like that - these books are meant to be fun, not high art). I just ask myself why is JK telling us now - if it was important, it should have been explicit in the book, if it's irrelevant ... well it's irrelevant.

And for that matter, why am I even blogging this?

Y'know.. I just thought it was one final attempt to get the overly hyped Harry Potter series back into the news one last time so that more people get sucked into the franchise.
