Popular Culture: Harry Potter: July 2004 Archives

July 15, 2004

Look, it's fiction, okay?

United States: A birthday card to Harry Potter has caused chaos at a Missouri post office. The sender, who is old enough to know better, sprinked some white powder on the envelope. As a result, the office was closed for two hours while it was checked out by hazardous material specialists.

The letter turned out to be a birthday card a 16-year-old fan was sending to Harry Potter in England. The teen apparently sprinkled the card with some floo powder, which turned out to be harmless talcum powder. In the books by JK Rowling, floo powder helps wizards travel.
