Now, which piece of news today will get more people worked up?

B-52 bomber gets accidentally armed with six nuclear missiles and flown from North Dakota to Louisiana without anyone noticing it for over a day?

Or

Rowling Says Dumbledore Is Gay?

Sad as it is, I think we all know the answer to that question.

The missile thing was six weeks ago and got coverage at the time, mostly people who suspect that it was not nearly as accidental as claimed and was in fact sending the message "We've already got nukes" to Iran.

Whoops. Must have missed that somehow.

It was just a very strange juxaposition of stories to hit me when I woke up.

As someone who actually works for the military, I'd be willing to buy the fact that it was a stupid accident. After all, a different branch 'misplaced' a rocket for an experiment I was involved with.

Now I have a grand idea for a fanfic, or at least a fanfic title.
"Dumbledore's Sexuality & The Phallic Symbology Of Nuclear Weapons"

That could work. I can see the essays now. "Rewriting Harry Potter: Why Dumbledore Really Would Prefer You Replace Wands With Wangs."

Before people just thought Dumbledore was manipulating Harry as a weapon. Now they'll look back at his "I don't need a cloak to become invisible" and following young boys around the castle late at night from a new angle.

Perhaps a fanfic where a peeping Moaning Myrtle startles a peeping Albus Dumbledore as they're both ogling the Head Boy in the bath.

In general or on LJ? Because it'd be strange if the former got more play on LJ when it isn't linked to people's LJ-ish activities, while the latter was.

The B-52 bomber thing is a bit surprising. The Dumbledore thing not so much, actually, especially after reading Deathly Hallows.

Well, considering the nuke mistake happened awhile ago... ;)
