This Is News?
Obviously, those of you who read the P.L. Travers piece in the December 12, 2005 edition of The New Yorker will fail to find anything particularly new in this brief CNN.com article that makes use of the fact that *gasp!* she didn't like Walt Disney. Ho hum. Slightly more interesting is the mention in it that a Ms. Valerie Lawson is writing a new biography of the woman in question. And, should any of you be willing to make a Mary Poppins pilgrimage, I happen to know the secret location of the original parrot-headed Mary Poppins umbrella. Shhh.
