It turns out that JK Rowling's recent hint that Potter might meet his end in the seventh Harry Potter installment has gotten around to just about everybody. Even Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report took a look at the hint and why it is a good idea during a segment titled "Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger."
Stephen Colbert Discusses Potter's Possible Death
In short, Stephen Colbert is hilarious. About one minute and thirty seconds into his special segment he moves right on to JK Rowling by giving the author the tip of the hat for possibly killing off Harry Potter. Why does he agree? Because it is a wise move -- he practices witchcraft, he should have been stoned a long time ago.
He sums it up that kids need to face the cold hard facts of life, just like the kids of China.

The odds we give on Harry Potter's survival? Ehh, 40-60.
