Saturday, January 6 ~ Evening
"... And as parents across the commonwealth well know, this weekend the Hogwarts Express will speed across the land to bring the students back to their books.
"Tonight, though, the members of the Board of Governors and select members of the Hogsmeade community were welcomed to the castle ahead of the start of second term by the staff.
"Percy Weasley, the director of the Hogsmeade Ministry office, spoke at length and quite knowlegeably about traditional and non-traditional spellcasting methods.
"So, students, take comfort in this as you head back to class: even over the holidays, your teachers went in for a little learning themselves."
"Never too old, eh?"
The sound of a door creaking open floated over the airwaves, and if one listened closely, a fiercely whispered exchange could be heard:
"Tell them about the after-party! The drunken debauchery! Tell them what really happened!"
"Rita, get the hell out of here! You don't have any sources, we'll get sued ..."
"Some greedy witch got engaged before I could have a fair crack at the groom-to-be! That's injustice! I should write an editorial ..."
A fierce rustling was heard, and the original voice returned.
