Well, I'll confess that I've been seen occasionally at the DnD table with
my son and his friends. My current character, an Elven priest, was zapped
into oblivion recently. While I've been busy (and dead in the other
realm), the other players were kind enough to get me resurrected.
I'm ready to answer any questions about "the other side" to those who
want to know. ;-)
I find that fantasy is good, as long as one does not live his life in it.

I'm much less enthused by Harry Potter. This was discussed on another

totally different direction. Maybe I'll have to eat humble pie and read
all of the books to find out because so many LDS people seem to be in
of it. Don't you know that'll just irritate Protestant Fundamentalists
worse than anything else? They'll think we're Satanists for sure!
