It's pretty easy to find books written about Walt Disney, but not so easy to find books written about or by Disney Imagineers or Cast Members.
For many of us Anaheim makes us think of Mickey Mouse and Disneyland. After all, the theme park has drawn hundreds of millions of people since it opened in 1955. But unexpected treasures can be found just outside Disney's walls.
“All I have to say is, this is a world that’s so full of hate lately and it’s up to us to realize that it doesn’t have to be. We can come together.”
what if you had time to spend in Anaheim -- say, before and/or after visiting You-Know-Whatland and You-Know-Where Adventure? Or -- hey, it could happen -- what if you wanted or needed to visit Anaheim for totally non-themeparkish purposes?
On Saturday I went to Anaheim armed with a pen, iPhone and index cards to conduct research on hate groups. The California Realm of the North Carolina-based Loyal White Knights Klan (LWK) group was supposed to come to a park for an "informational walk." As soon as the LWK arrived, the street adjoining the park turned into a violent maelstrom of knives, wooden planks, metal rods, fists, feet and blood.
