Good post with some engaging images looking at what happens to culture when it becomes a corporate commodity. Robert Paterson writes, "I see in this decision the relentless drive to dumb down all experience. The touching beauty and tenderness of the Pooh world and its relationships will soon be lost. As will the tragedy behind the story of a father, Milne, who could not show his real son the love and attention he needed but gave it instead to a son of his mind. Everything becomes crude and one dimensional missing the essence of Pooh. Even the art is now flat and crude." Sad.
