Credit where credit is due

Disney CEO Bob Iger gave an excellent response to the recent gun-violence massacre in Las Vegas.  It should be acknowledged.

It doesn’t change anything in regard to my criticisms toward Disney.  One good deed is not enough to erase decades of corruption and hypocrisy.

But do I dare hope that it may be a step in the direction of redemption?

(In all honesty, every time I get close to hoping such a thing, I notice the Disney people calling their employees “cast members,” even in this extremely serious context, and the kitsch-iness of it just rubs me the wrong way.  Oh, well.)
