It takes a village


The Walt Disney Co. is continuing to finesse it PR tactics with critics. Though it never sat down with aggrieved Southern Baptists or other activist religious groups over its perceived slide into a moral morass -- and really, what would have been the point? -- the company will meet with a contingent alarmed over the potential political implications of an Israel exhibit opening at Epcot's new Millennium Village.

"Middle Eastern realities are far too complex to allow for a clear and simple division between political, educational and cultural issues," said Hala Maksoud, of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.
