Harry Potter... fans, prepare to shed a tear. JK is still writing the lastest installment. #5 isn\'t due out for a while, June 2003 perhaps.
The Wind Done Gone lawsuit has been settled. Houghton Mifflin will contribute an unspecified amount to Morehouse College in Georgia, and Mitchell\'s estate will leave them alone. So I guess we\'re allowed to parody.
Finally, I\'m sad to report that the Osbournes will be paid three million dollars for two books. Simon and Schuster will be giving them this money.
