you smell it, Bostonians? Can you smell it in the air? That, my
friends, is the scent of the end of summer. Soon, the thousands of students
we have been missing (or perhaps not missing) will return; everything

days, warm nights and dreamy endlessness of summer.
Remember that Harry Potter thing everyone was so crazy over?
There were a bunch of books, or something? Then some movies? Well, you
had better remember, because it is not going away. This week, Boston has
more than one Potter-based celebration. The Harvard Museum of Natural
History has an exhibit, and wizard rock band Harry and the Potters are
playing a free concert in Harvard Square.
