J.K. Rowling says she won an argument with airport security officials in New York to carry the manuscript of the final "
Harry Potter" book as carry-on baggage. Had security agents not relented, the British author said on her Web site, she might not have flown. "I don't know what I would have done if they hadn't; sailed home probably," she wrote. The posting was dated Wednesday.
