The ship transporting copies of At The Corner Of Fantasy And Main: Disneyland, Midlife And Churros has FINALLY been cleared to unload this Saturday at the Long Beach/San Pedro Port! There can still be delays, of course, but it’s moving. And I promise it’s worth the wait for those of you who pre-ordered!
To help pass the time, here is a sort-of B-Side. In my research, I found this quote by Krushchev when he wasn’t allowed to visit Disneyland in 1959 (and he was miffed!). I still haven’t written the poem for it:
“And I say, I would very much like to go and see Disneyland. But then, we cannot guarantee your security, they say. Then what must I do? Commit suicide? What is it? Is there an epidemic of cholera there or something? Or have gangsters taken hold of the place that can destroy me?”Nikita Khrushchev, 9/19/1959
