J.K. Rowling Will Be Harvard Commencement Speaker

I know she's technically the most fascinating person in the world, by Barbara Walters' standards anyway, but isn't it a little weird that J.K. Rowling is speaking at the Harvard graduation?

These kids just went through 4 grueling years of Ivy League in the greatest college town in America, and probably got to go out twice. Harvard kids spend about 2% of their time outside the library, and I'll bet money they weren't reading Harry Potter.

Don't get me wrong, she's a very accomplished woman, and the books are amazing, but somehow Quiddich and Hogwarts seems a little out of place for IQ's this high.
