    It also doesn't help matters that old clocks, which always turn out to be grandfather clocks, seem to embody evil spirits in folk literature for children. Are there evil old clocks in the Disney universe?

    I read this morning that Disney is now warning before showing old movies on their new channel, that the content does not match today's norms, so viewer discretion is advised! Snow White was given as an example, as was Cinderella. Strange world we live in.

    It is indeed, for social media has helped divide us into thousands of squabbling tribes. Some years ago a spiritual tree in Pocahontas infuriated a powerful evangelical church here, which then made the near-fatal error of mounting a boycott against all things Disney. The church has since lost much of its influence and has (hooray) remained politically silent.

    I think we'll wise up eventually, but the process is taking longer than we might wish.

    I assume that we're all aware of the dangers of imported German brass. Think of the children.
