I figure Disney will be making Faux-Pooh movies until the end of time; Paul Winchell was replaced by talented voice actor Jim Cummings some while back (he also plays Pooh since the death of Sterling Holloway), so I'm sure they'll find a reasonable voice replacement... but in my mind, they're NEVER the same. Someone else is voicing Dexter (Dexter's Laboratory) these days, and I couldn't even watch an entire episode, 'cause it just wasn't RIGHT.
Today I read some of the NY Times before work, and as usual, whenever I read national news, I get depressed. It took a few hours to shake it off, and I'm not even sure why, since I thought I'd pretty much become resigned to overall American stupidity and narrow-minded bigotry here... and then yet another good article from Frank Rich. Also a little depressing, since he's likely right. BUT... I was cheered by NPR's "All Things Considered" on the way home, as one of the commentators said Bush was gearing up to give a speech which has to assure Americans that the troops will NOT be in Iraq indefinitely, while at the same time assuring Iraqis that the troops WILL be in Iraq indefinitely.
I figure everyone who supports Bush will think he pulls this interesting task off admirably.
