Tonight (July 14, 2006) I watched CNN and saw Anderson Cooper's live report from Isreal.
During a segment, they showed bomb shelters including a children's bomb shelter with large, impressive Disney Murals on the walls. The camera shots were quick but you could make out Show White and The Seven Dwarfs clearly. There were others too. I think I saw Beauty and The Beast and Little Mermaid but they were quite quick so I may be wrong.
There were also large 3D toys and statues of other Disney images.
Anyways, there are many reasons why I bring this to your attention but one that struck me was that recently there was a thred stateing that Walt's brilliance was leading to the 2006 Top Movie of the Year.... I was impressed by that fact but seeing this made me think that his brilliance has nothing to do with money but basic human needs like comfort, continuity and Safety.
Then I thought how ugly to use these images in a time of war... but maybe that was petty.
Anyways... did anyone else see this? Any reactions?
A Funny thought just crossed my mind... didn;t Disney once sue a bunch of Daycares for using Disney images? Maybe Disney can sue War itself.
- Peace and Love Folks,
- Prayers for all,
- Some long days may be ahead.
- longer nights.
