It’s hard to imagine anyone not liking Disney. Sure, many of us go through a phase where we think we’re too old and sophisticated for Mickey Mouse. This typically leads to our pretentious cynic phase in which our college professors open our eyes to all the stereotypes and “hurtful ethics” Disney has endorsed over the years. Films like “Escape from Tomorrow” haven’t exactly helped the company’s image either. At the end of the day, though, nobody can outrun the magic, good will, and sheer lovability attached to Disney. There isn’t a cold-hearted soul that can’t be completely won over by the mouse house … except maybe P.L. Travers, the author of “Mary Poppins.”

A recent General Mills Cheerios commercial has reminded us Americans (and those in other parts of the world) that race still causes severe social and political upset in 2013. A 30-second YouTube commercial featuring a young biracial child interacting with her white mother and black father has created a cyber firestorm of racially-charged attacks: “disgusting,” “racial genocide,” “anti-white,” and “want to vomit.”
The Obama administration seems to have gone Jack Bauer on us, which would be okay if we were just talking about non-American enemy combatants on some far-flung battlefield. It seems the administration danced its way around case law and the Constitution in an attempt to justify the assassination of three American citizens it refuses to acknowledge it had any part of, post execution.
WASHINGTON – Arizona police agencies were among those singled out in a two-year Senate probe that reported “widespread deficiencies” in a Homeland Security Department program that officials touted for years as a centerpiece in U.S. counterterrorism efforts.

Fred Barlam of the Ahwatukee Foothills recently submitted comments to The Inbox claiming to be “a Jew.”
I have resided in Phoenix since 2004. As an Arizonan, and a Jew, I am appalled at the Republican Senators who allowed avowed anti-Semite, and purported racist, Glenn Spencer to testify before an Arizona Senate committee on March 1.
Two Democratic lawmakers walked out of a Senate hearing Thursday to protest a presentation by the leader of a civilian border surveillance group who a watchdog organization describes as a “vitriolic Mexican-basher.”

“I think if the city of Mesa and Metro want to take Willie Wong’s land that’s been in the family for over 100 years and Grunnell’s Tire & Auto for a park-and-ride lot, then they should step up and pay full price and then some. The last thing the city needs is another Bailey’s Brake Shop fiasco. Will the city do the right thing? Stay tuned folks.”
A former Maricopa County constable for the Kyrene Justice Court has been arrested by Tempe police on suspicion of plotting to burn down his Tempe home for insurance money.
I've been watching the unfolding drama of the "Occupy Wall Street" phenomenon. It's reminiscent of many 1960s protest demonstrations by casually-dressed, loosely-coifed or bearded young folks - which we now call this or that "generation."

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown: Mr. Obama’s term in office is like Disney’s Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. His reckless policies and actions cause destruction to whatever he touches. He needs to be stopped.
"Avatar" is on the cusp of toppling the domestic box-office record after leading all movies for a seventh straight week.
Review: It's been seven years since his last film, but Mel Gibson is still playing martyr.For much of his career, Gibson has played both reluctant and enthusiastic heroes righteously battling corruption ("Lethal Weapon"), oppression ("The Patriot," "Braveheart"), injustice ("Payback," "Ransom") and disinformation ("Conspiracy Theory"). In "Edge of Darkness," he's up against a little of each.
The science-fiction blockbuster "Avatar" won best drama at the Golden Globes and picked up the directing honor for James Cameron on Sunday, raising the "Titanic" filmmaker's prospects for another Academy Awards triumph.
Daryl Cagle: The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians still looms large in political cartoons around the world, with an endless flow of cartoons from Arab countries showing monster-Israel assaulting, eating, crushing or somehow decimating the poor Palestinians.
