Magic Warms My Heart

Love this. I guess a little magic can go a long way...

"We also know that [Rep. Gifford's] husband has gotten large-print pages of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the first book in the J.K. Rowling series, 'for her to hold and read.' In a CNN story filled with reasons to tear up, for me, that was one of them... The series doesn’t sugarcoat what Harry faces to protect what he believes in. It’s about him standing up for himself and those he fights for, and overcoming the obstacles (and man) who would stop him.

Happy reading, Rep. Giffords. If this is your first trip to Hogwarts, here’s a spoiler: Harry’s a Gryffindor. So are you."

Let's Save This Cute Puppy Today

For whatever (oh so very) loyal readers I have left, I'm joining gothamist's efforts to Save This Cute Puppy Today. Such a sad story (she was found tied to the Williamsburg Bridge's walkway during the snowstorm... I can practically hear my heart wrenching in two), but hopefully someone can offer this sweet girl a loving home!

See ScoutingNY for more information about this precious little pup.
