Cleveland is No. 3 in Harry Potter Obsession

Cleveland’s wild about Harry. And we’re not just talking about all the events coming your way Friday night, when the new book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, will be released. Seems that our city ranks No. 3 on Yahoo! Buzz’s “Most Obsessed Harry Potter Regions.” The latest Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, came out a week ago. It broke some box-office record – but we couldn’t tell you which one, since a new one is added to the books every week. With the final novel, the new movie, and all the tie-in crap, Harry Potter pretty much hogged Yahoo! Buzz’s Top 20 Searches list over the weekend. And when all the magic spells cleared, Cleveland turned out be No. 3 on the list of cities that spent the past few days indoors, searching for websites about a fictional teenage wizard. Muggles in El Paso and Milwaukee took the top spots, apparently because there’s nothing better to do in El Paso and Milwaukee. --Michael Gallucci
