    Disney World is 43 square miles -- bigger than San Francisco! Where could you find that much land that's available and feasible to purchase in 2022, is near a major highway system, is accessible by a major airport, and is in a warm climate? Even if you could find a site, and even if it were possible to move all the facilities there, keep in ind that Walt had crews working 24 hours a day for seven years to get it open.

    It was a very difficult undertaking sixty years ago, and it just couldn't be done again.

    ^Yeah, if you watch a video about how various rides and attractions were made, refurbished, or changed, you'll see it's really big, expensive, and complicated. I didn't realize until I read one of these articles how much of a deal Disney was getting with a decades-old deal.

    Many media pundits have claimed that DeSantis badly screwed up here. But Disney suddenly got awful quiet about Florida politics, didn't it? That looks to me like mission accomplished for him.

    And anybody who claims that Disney can "just" move Disney World to another state and go right on as if nothing happened has never visited the park. It's ENORMOUS, and besides that, a hell of a lot of people who a few weeks ago wanted to visit wouldn't be caught dead there now.

    Ron DeSantis makes me want to lose my breakfast. But with that said, Disney brought this disaster in Florida on itself, by getting too big for its britches.

    Even if politicians hadn't punished Disney, the market would have. Someone once asked Michael Jordan why he didn't talk about politics, and he said, "Republicans buy shoes too." Jordan recognized a very obvious fact that Disney didn't, which that it's idiocy to chase away half your potential customers.

    I hope this results in corporations shutting the hell up about politics, and instead of contributing to campaigns, using that money to pay its shareholders dividends.

    You know, in their getting back to BUSINESS.

    Well, word is that he's knocking out these cheapies (where he gets paid big bucks and gets his lines fed into an earpiece) to make as much money for his family before he can't anymore (which I guess is now).

    It reminds me of how after basketball coach Bobby Knight developed dementia, his handlers brought him to a show-and-tell at Indiana University, the school that had unceremoniously fired him, and proclaimed that it marked a reconciliation between him and IU. I'm not at all sure that the pugnacious Knight would have wanted that, and I'm not at all sure that Willis would have wanted what his handlers did with him either.

    BTW, IU's basketball program crashed and burned without Knight.

    ^Yeah, Red Letter Media did two videos on the Bruce Willis churned-out movies. In between the rumor of his condition came out, which they acknowledged.

    People kept putting the befuddled Bruce Willis in front of cameras, and often in bad movies, for at least two years because they were making money by doing so.

    For many years Harvey Weinstein felt perfectly free to rape actresses. Now he's smuggling Milk Duds.

    I just watched Jussie's sentencing, and it made me sad. The guy had gone so far out on a limb with his story that he's still sticking to it and still acting angry.

    It's a tragedy.

    I never suspected anything like this about Jerry Lewis. But anybody who ever watched an hour of one of his telethons should have realized that he was a complete asshole.

    Jokes aside, that looks like it might be dementia.
