Pleased to report that DisneyWar just keeps getting better and better! Our Shakespearean tyrant has conspired to get his best friend appointed as his lieutenant, and then worked underhandedly from day one to get his best friend lieutenant fired in disgrace!
He's going to cost this company so, so much money it's almost hilarious!
If you got paid $5K a day since the day of Columbus' arrival in the new world and somehow never invested any of it, then yeah--you're not a billionaire now. But if you managed to put even 2K a day into something that averaged a miniscule and super-conservative 2% return, you'd've lapped Bezos 14 times in (non volatile!) net worth and been able to spend $500MM to live your best deathless vampire life.
One bit of good news: my division has a separate insurance rate sheet and my insurance is not, in fact, going up 4-5x in price next year.
But then, I think in solidarity with other divisions at this company, and they're apparently paying 4-5x what I do! Gross!
And then, I think in solidarity with our many contractors, who get no insurance help at all. Even more gross!
We need a national, universally available, health care plan. And we need to make it available by taxing wealth.
So, I love this—Francis Coppola felt that his 1984 Cotton Club movie got butchered by the studio, and he's re-worked it at his own expense years later, to rave reviews: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/oct/04/the-cotton-club-encore-review-francis-ford-coppolas-reworked-masterpiece
I wonder how much is in the re-edit and how much is in changing times? But also I want to see baby Fishburne and baby Nic Cage on the big screen!
