In memorium to Michael Jackson. One of the most chilling things I ever read about him (MJ) was in a Newsweek article from 1994 (?) in which he said all of his plastic surgery was an attempt to look more like Mickey Mouse. Coincidentally, we have been watching through a lot of old Mickey Mouse cartoons lately. My favorite period of Mickey is the "black eye" period, before you can see his whites. I think Donald Duck might have been one of the first Disney characters to show the whites of his eyes. And, as I always do when talking "Mickey," I shout "UB IWERKS!"
