    I voted, and I will again next year against the board, even though I only have 125 shares (<.000001%)

    Keep up the fight, Roy and Stan!!!

    Like I have said before... Getting Eisner to step down as CEO was a Giant Step... But there would be no way to do so and have him not determine the rules of his depature... Which was to get Iger as CEO... And it was his actions no matter how honorable or dishonorable they where betrayed this desire... Oh, and Iger was also on the Board when Meg was interviewed...

    If you want to talk about a "Fix."

    The trouble is that of that 66%... Many of them are State Employee Funds mostly held by Teachers... They are not happy with what has come out of Disney in recent years... Among these are CalPers which is Disney's largest investor...

    Of course there are those of us individual investors who usually are trading for the long term... Most of whom don't usually vote on the proxy... Which allows full authorization to the board to act in their best interests.

    The biggest obsticle was a personal vindetta between Steve Jobs and Michael Eisner... Eisner testified before congress refering directly to Apple's marketing campaign, calling for heavier regulations because it promotes activities that harm Disney's copywrites.

    It is understandable why Jobs doesn't want to even talk to Eisner... And my money is on Jobs, because he has been fighting Bill Gates for years now.

    Iger may or may not have a chance to patch it up... Everyone hopes so... But with what has been happening with content and Ipod, and maybe TiVo if Apple purchases the company... A strategic alliance between Apple and Disney is almost more important than an alliance between Pixar and Disney...

    That is one of the things that infuriated me about the Dream Desk... Disney getting into computing and dissing Jobs, yet again...

    If he brings Pixar back without giving away the store, he's golden.

    Pixar is going to demand a better deal... And I am surprised that Disney agreed to the last one... But much is riding on Chicken Little for Disney if it flops of if it flies...

    Pixar is looking for a deal which will look more like DreamWorks Animation's deal with NBC/Universal...

    The only other player really is Viacom...

    Lion's Gate isn't big enough... But I imagine that LG will want to partner with the Weinstein's new company...
