Harry Potter – 5, Laura Mallory – 0

Much like Voldemort, head lice or jock itch, Laura Mallory just won’t go away without a fight.

She’s still “Oh-fer” but vows to continue her pointless, silly fight:

“I’ve done the best I can with all of this,” Mallory said after the hearing.

I would contend that discretion – or in this case surrender – is easily the better part of valor (or lack thereof).

Please, Mrs. Mallory, stop this nonsense. The people of Atlanta and their children have already voted against you with their wallets and their shame. Don’t cause any more harm than you already have.

At this point I think it’s a foregone conclusion that YOU madam are far worse than any children’s book could be.

Every sane person who has to hear your noise

UPDATE: Severe mathlessness removed from post title. I suxx0r at teh internets.

    I would like to nominate her for the (I’m inventing it as I type) Atlanta Metblogs Jackhole of the Month Award for finding such an absurd way to piss away my tax dollars.

    Her lunacy makes me want to move to Holland.

    Can’t we banish her to the creationist museum or something?

    You want to hear the kicker? She vows to keep fighting this issue and wants to take it to Federal court. Her legal argument? That having Harry Potter books in public school libraries violates “the separation of church and state” due to the fact that “witchcraft” is a religion. So in another words, the fact that she’s trying to force her extreme right wing Christian viewpoints on an entire school district isn’t a violation of the separation of church and state, but Harry Potter and it’s tenuous connection to witchcraft is.
