Episode 23 of The Falcon and the Dove: Greenfest, 'Phoenix', and Baby Boomers. This quite eventful week, we discuss the Carnegie Science Center's plans for Live Earth 7/7/07, our incredible experience seeing 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix' 12 days early, the very 'giving' Baby Boomers, Big Foot, and so much more! Enjoy!

- We give our personal SPOILER-FREE review of the fifth Harry Potter film installment (it was AWESOME!), as well as the entire experience as a whole. Thank you South Side Works Cinema and MySpace! You rocked the house!
- We compare 'Order of the Phoenix' to another 'Part 5', such as Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. If you liked that, you will enjoy 'Order of the Phoenix'. In our review, it was the best of the five, which is saying something!
- NOTE: Check out Dove's editorial on Harry's psychological and emotional growth in 'Order of the Phoenix', 'You're Angry, I'm Angry'. WARNING: Major book and movie plot spoilers!
- In the coming weeks, we will be reviewing films such as 'A Mighty Heart' (with Angelina Jolie and Dan Flutterman) and Michael Moore's documentary, 'Sicko'. Stay tuned!
- Baby Boomers give care to various family members; so much so that if they were paid to do all that they do, the total would be $350 billion! However, Baby Boomers are aging, so now what?
- There is a spike in children's health issues.
- Potent Produce.
- WEIRD SCIENCE: Scientists out to prove once and for all that Big Foot is real. Finally!
