"We cannot fault Disney too much for putting profit over making a social statement."
Yes. Yes we can.
Excellent article. Very insightful. We cannot fault Disney too much for putting profit over making a social statement. They are a business. Overall, they do well balancing mass appeal and meaningful themes. But your article deftly raised the question of whether they have swung too far toward the former. Thanks for a thoughtful article.
AIDS is no longer a death sentence in developed countries. It is now a treatable disease.
AIDS seems to be prolonging Earvin "Magic" Johnson's life.
Worried about AIDS? According to the CDC, about 440,000 people die from tobacco smoke every year. That number includes the mostly innocent 49400 who die from exposure to secondhand smoke.
Deaths from AIDS? 8369. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/aids-hiv.h…
That's right, almost 6 times as many die from exposure to secondhand smoke as die from AIDS in the USA.
So if you want to be worried about AIDS to the point where you don't have sex anymore help yourself.
Just don't try to tell me that if you have a cigarette in your mouth.
Better yet, don't get a blood transfusion from someone with aids.
And if you do drop your pants, don't bend over.
Aids is a preventable disease. Keep it in ur pants and shazam....no aids!!
This is a shame full indictment of the Bible Belt's views sex education and teaching condom use. The religious and political leaders know that using condoms effectively prevent the transmission of AIDS and other STDs but continue to their demagogy to pander instead of lead.

Is she showing somewhere in Charleston?
As a local up and coming artist, I was wondering if there any where in Charleston that an artist can get assistance in creating a bio and artist statement.
In my 1st yr. of doing this professionally, I find that it is a lot of work becoming a successful artist and that there are many facets that adds to that success, such as
visiting galleries, speaking with other artist, creating a web site, photographing work, updating, meeting deadlines, and exhibiting etc. Perhaps this venture will give us some real hope. Thank you sharing this platform and may all find great success in this inaugural venture.
Kevin Taylor is an artist in every sense of the word.
He deserves all the accolades sometimes reserved for another giant.
Thank you, Leah! And thank you Elizabeth Pandolfini for seeing the value in allowing theatre productions outside of downtown Charleston to be reviewed!
Just ordered our tickets. looking forward to seeing the show!
I love this. It is my life's greatest disappointment that I have no talent for art creation because my soul hungers for visual, tactile, and auditory art. I am so excited that I might be empowered to help "create" art by becoming a CSA shareholder with a financial investment I can actually afford!
Great idea with lots of opportunities for artists and collectors. Anne
Olive -- this is so well-written! You did such a good job of capturing the "all the feels" of the day in a short piece. (I don't think I used that expression exactly right.) Thanks for all the kind words! -- Jonathan
