Declaration of independence

106? It’s going to be 106 here today?!

Alright then, let’s go to Orlando. It’s only going to be 90 there, and in the Magic Kingdom they don’t worry about mundane environmental reality anyway.  Carl Hiaasen‘s got me well prepared.

Imagine promoting a universe in which raw Nature doesn’t fit because it doesn’t measure up; isn’t safe enough, accessible enough, predictable enough, even beautiful enough for company standards. Disney isn’t in the business of exploiting Nature so much as striving to improve upon it.

I will, I will! I will use my imagination. I’ll wish upon a star. I’ll try to enjoy the parade. I’ll pretend to believe in magic, for the kids. And I’ll remind myself to appreciate the secular appeal of commercial enterprise rooted in global pop culture.

We’ll be there on the 4th – a good place, really an essential place to declare one’s independence.
