Don't kill Harry Potter, authors urge Rowling

This is funny. J. K. Rowling, John Irving, and Stephen King gave a charity reading at NYC's Radio City Music Hall, and Irving and King spoke about how they hoped Harry would survive the last book in the series. John Irving, an author for whom death is a major recurring theme, and well FREAKING Stephen King! Rowling's response is priceless.

"When fans accuse me of sadism, which doesn't happen that often, I feel I'm toughening them up to go on and read John and Stephen's books," she said. "I think they've got to be toughened up somehow. It's a cruel literary world out there."
