[Is the Harry Potter series actually a recruiting promo
for Satanism? The question -- raised by more than a few
voices -- is in the news again with the opening of the
lastest Harry Potter movie. The author JK Rawling, who
ought to know, emphatically doesn't think so. Likewise
the cast. In fact, Potter himself (in his non-acting
persona) professes himself on British tv to be too
excited to sleep at the prospect of ... singing Tom
Lehrer's tribute to the periodic table of elements.
(See our first Friday Nite Video below.) How's that for
putting fiction and science into perspective? Well
done, Potter. -- video moderator]

"Unstoppable hit theaters last week and while it was no
secret that stars like Denzel Washington, Chris Pine,
and Rosario Dawson would save the day, the film treats
audiences to an unpredictable plot twist. Spoiler alert
-- the heroes are actually blue-collar union members."
