Maybe I wasn't as on top of this as I had thought

Last week, I wrote about a couple of Letters to Nature in which scientists discussed in a tongue-in-cheek manner what the genetics of inheritance of the wizarding ability might be in the Harry Potter stories. A reader named Sarah has pointed out to me that I (and the authors of both Nature letters) are a bit behind the times. Apparently, this discussion has been going on for at least since 2003, and Sara shared with me some links to prove it. I thought I'd share them with you:

Ah, well. I guess that's what I get for being a relative newcomer to the Harry Potter phenomenon, having only just read all the books since last winter.
