Hasn't this stuff about Richard destroying childhood gone a bit far? I mean - he only mentioned that he would be interested in any evidence which suggested such stories clouded the mind.

The real problem is not that children are reading fairytales... it's that they are not reading GOOD science books - which illustrate just how amazing the real world is.

Another problem is the amount of adults that actually read Harry Potter! I mean come on... no matter what cover you put on it - it's still a childrens book. Grow up already and read some adult fiction ;-)
