Augustine on Pop Culture: Harry Potter and Tears

Been reading much about the tears being spilled over Harry Potter, when I remembered what Saint Augustin said about the tears he cried over a story.  He wrote:
I could weep over the death Dido brought upon herself out of live for Aeneas, yet I shed no tears over the death I brought upon myself by not loving [God].

Today he might have written, "I could week over the death of Harry Potter brought upon him by the sacrifice he had to make, yet I shed no tears over the death I brought upon myself by not loving [God].
