Walt who made thee mighty

  • In the process of kicking off celebrations for Disneyland's 50th anniversary today Michael Eisner drew a baffling allusion to the British Empire.
    "The sun never sets on Disney's global theme park landscape," he said.
    This all goes back to my suggestion that we give Cuba to Disney. Rule Dislandia!

  • Well, this was pretty half-assed. I have two theories on who is to blame:
    1) It's your typical drunken American who thinks he's a member of the IRA, despite the fact that he, his father and his grandfather were all born in Hackensack. There are millions of Americans who would bravely blow up a planter in the name of Eire.
    2) A jaded British reporter who wanted to ensure that the election got some coverage on American news networks.

  • I'll be honest with you, I don't get a whole hell of a lot of e-mail in response to my columns. But I've noticed that the feedback that I do receive usually comes from housewives. Why is that, do you suppose?
    If you were to ask me what my target audience is, I suppose my answer would be: "me."
    I am a housewife, apparently.

  • Best name I've seen today: "Porscha Liberator."

    No wonder Eisner wanted to open up EuroDisney.
