Harry Potter's wizardry
The sense of anticipation has been building at our house for more than a month. There was a false alarm a few weeks ago, when my 9-year-old daughter, Sarah, heard that the big day was June 15. She was counting down the hours, only to discover tearfully that the actual date was July 8.

No more rogues
Geopolitical alert to all terror sponsors, invaders of peaceful countries and all-around bad guys: Be advised that ''rogue nations'' are no longer in the official U.S. lexicon. Henceforth, they are to be called ''states of concern.'' Got that?
The Social Security debate
After the titanic confrontations of the mid-1990s, the war between the parties over the proper size and scope of the federal government appears to have fizzled into stalemate. Since the defeat of President Clinton's universal health-care plan in 1994, Democrats mostly have shied away from major new spending proposals. And since a public backlash doomed the Republican budget plan of 1995, the GOP has abandoned the drive to significantly shrink the government by eliminating programs and agencies. Through Clinton's second term, the two sides have essentially agreed to divide the tax windfall pouring into the federal Treasury without making major structural changes.

Parenting is difficult challenge for teen-age moms, dads
DEAR ABBY: My letter concerns the one from ''Steve in Minnesota,'' who wrote about teen-age pregnancy.

However, these points should be made to young people before they decide to have children. What does it say to those who are already parents?

Hot car can end a dog's life
DEAR ABBY: Now that summer is here, please remind your readers never to leave their dogs or other pets in their cars -- even for ''just a minute.'' I understand that owners may think they will be gone only a brief period and the animal will be OK, but it takes only three minutes for the inside of a car to become much hotter than it is outside. In such heat, the pet's body can shut down, and it will die.
