I wasn't making an aesthetic point about J.K. Rowling vs Gigli yesterday. After all Al Capone appears quite regularly.
My point is just that if I did a straw poll among my acquaintance I'm pretty confident that fewer than 10% would have heard of Gigli, but I doubt that I'd find a single person who doesn't know what a muggle is. Generally there's a natural ageist (or rather youngist) slant in the Times crossword. I don't mind this at all (in fact I welcome it because it means I learn stuff) but it is nice when occasionally the balance is redressed a bit.
