Walt Disney and Cal Thomas

This is an oddity - I'm going to praise a Cal Thomas Column. His latest column, reviewing a biography of Walt Disney ("Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination" by Neal Gabler) is pretty inoffensive, and it looks like an interesting book. Thomas does describe Fantasia as "futuristic" which it really isn't, but other than that he does an ok job.

Of course he doesn't look at the content of Disney's movies, including Fantasia, where he might have found some conflict with modern Conservativism. Fantasia's Rite of Spring section for example. Or the implicit environmentalist message of Bambi.
