Glad to hear it.

Stores are stocking less Harry Potter crap (erm... merchandise) this time around:

"I told the staff not to sell any of it," says Gayle Shanks, owner of the Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, Ariz. "We failed with it last time. It was really pricey merchandise for pretty bad stuff, to be honest."

And no wonder.  The pretty cool mugs that we had at the Monkey were replaced with the most godawfully hideous things I've ever seen.
