    On the major radio station today they were talking about the need to remove Dwarfs from the title this go around because it is not sensitive in this day and age.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Yeah, because "little people" sounds so much more dignified.

    On the one hand, I don't know that we need any Snow White reboots, let alone three. Michael Arndt, though, did a fantastic job writing Toy Story 3, so I'm curious to see what he's got up his sleeve. (Even if, for whatever reason, reading the plot description makes me think of Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven.)

    My theory is it has everything to do with Disney rolling out Mining Roller coaster at Fantasyland. The timing is perfect. If the guts of remakes have been kinda hang'n around for a while it can be tweaked and ready to hit the theaters around the time Fantasyland starts to go online and build hype.

    Being on our local school board for years it is always a challenge to keep up with the ever changing or politically correct label, all while knowing it isn't nice to label anyone but necessary from everything for race, intellect, poverty line or physical limitations. Especially when you are speaking off the cuff in an open meeting, it is difficult to search for the latest, acceptable label all the while trying to make a point in a discussion, use last years label and you just hear the *gasps*. Add in the expense of changing every single employee manual and legally revising every policy manual solely for language alterations when labels are changed. It is very daunting and cumbersome.

    I just don't think that 3 are necessary. Honestly, it makes it seem like Disney is running out of ideas for good original movies, even if they aren't
