Re: Voldy & the wizarding world & AK
Those really are very interesting points - I especially like the emphasis you placed on "most of us"; at first read, you'd imagine Hagrid in fact refers to the general public - particularly since we learned when he got Harry away from the Dursleys, that Hagrid's technically not supposed to do magic. That would tend to give the reader the impression that Hagrid is representative of the "average Joe", as it were - just your unschooled groundskeeper, a variable representative of the mediocrity. Of course, in hindsight, we have Hagrid as a very perceptive individual, and an intensely loyal one, to boot. The meaning of most of us could be that Hagrid is referring, not to the Order, but to Dumbledore's most loyal.

Wow, our first 'external' commentator! You are hereby awarded a diploma... here we go.

I'm also inclined to think that Hagrid is referred to Dumbledore's 'most loyal'. It's almost scary to note that the reader cannot safely disregard even the most minor details; they can get whole new meanings in the later books.
