Hogwarts—Minutemen Retreat

This is the place where all the magic happens. It's totally Muggle but, I like to pretend that I'm at Hogwarts and can cast spells like the Babbling Curse. It would have been a good one to use on the neo-nazi Bush supporting Minutemen who came last night to speak... After thanking Jesus Christ, opening speaker Marvin Stewart demanded, "ARE YOU READY to surrender your liberties?" Soon after, their fearsome leader Jim Gilchrist gets staged rushed by a bunch of pissed student protesters...

[Part of] the Statement released by "Those who occupied the stage:"

"... They are a racist, armed militia who have declared open hunting season on immigrants, causing countless hate crimes and over 3000 deaths on the border. Why should exploitative corporations have free passes between nations, but individual people not? No human being is illegal."

It looks dark and creepy. You work in the Slytherin tower.
