    Thanks, Reg.

    Florida’s hissy-fit over Disney, revoking their special status, hands Florida residents in the Disneyland area a $1-$2 billion unfunded obligation which will need to be resolved by raising taxes substantially.

    @Reg

    The Paywall Monster has raised it’s ugly head over the abortion story in The Economist.

    I was surprised for about 4 seconds when I heard about what Ron DeSanatized did. He is definitely biting the hand that feeds and money speaks louder than Christian moral values. It will be interesting to watch what ensues.  Bill Maher covered it on Friday night.

    @unseen – I have changed the link on the abortion pay-walled article to one I have in my “potential post” document.

    Ted Cruz was, as usual, very concerned with the Disney situation. He is wondering what would happen if “Mickey Mouse and Pluto were to go at it”.  I think he should be more concerned if Goofy was to join in with them. It could ruin it for them.

    Goofy once asked “Ever stop to think and forget to start again”? I think he should address that question to Ted Cruz. Funny how the GOP is so concerned with imaginary characters.

    That’s like “don’t say gay” Ron DeathSantis here in Florida. I guess it’s OK with him if we can’t get homeowners insurance…I hope Disney packs up and moves.

    Reg,

    In this scene from Soap, I distinctly recall Billy Crystal’s character Jodie told Jessica Tate that Goofy was Plato’s (Pluto’s) lover…

    But the Memory-Holing sons-o’-bitches at Daily Mail or some other censor in transit struck that out.

    Billy Crystal as openly-gay Jodie on Seventies sit-com Soap
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1152286/Billy-Crystal-openly-gay-Jodie-1970s-sit-com-Soap.html

    Of course, some people will never learn what censorship can do to memory.
