    We want to retire in a place with a low cost of living, no humidity and no colder than 50 degrees — I freeze easily! Where should we go?

    A low tax burden would be beneficial, but not crucial. The South has the winter temperatures you want but is hot and humid in the summer. The MarketWatch “where should I retire” tool tells me you are headed to the Oregon coast, to a few spots in California or possibly to New Mexico.

    Disney’s problematic princess: why Snow White is forever being cancelled

    It’s a tale as old as Twitter. Disneyland’s new Snow White ride, which reopened this month after a year of Covid shutdown, faces criticism for its "non-consensual kiss" between Snow White and Prince Charming. Snow White’s Enchanted Wish is a reimagining of Snow White’s Scary Adventures, one of the park’s inaugural rides when it opened in 1955. And it retains many elements of the original: visitors clunk along in minecarts in front of scenes from the film, recreated with jazzy LED projections, lazers and herky-jerky animatronics. But this faithfulness to Walt Disney’s 1938 film is precisely the problem, according to theme park reviewers, Julie Tremaine and Katy Dowd. “The attraction preserves much of the charm of what was originally opened,” they wrote on SFGate. “[But] it also adds in the movie’s biggest problem.” They continued: “Haven't we already agreed that consent in early Disney movies is a major issue? Why not re-imagine an ending in keeping with the spirit of the movie and Snow White's place in the Disney canon, but that avoids this problem?” Why not indeed? Disneyland, after all, has proved a dab hand at hasty retrofits. As Tremaine and Dowd point out, another popular ride, Splash Mountain, has been overhauled because of its problematic Southern stereotypes. And The Jungle Cruise is still closed after Disney promised to remove the “Trader Sam” character, a jolly dealer in shrunken heads, and its ape-like depictions of indigenous people.

    Just months after then-first lady Melania Trump unveiled her controversial redesign of the beloved space directly outside the Oval Office, some are calling for her successor, Jill Biden, to undo those changes and return the Rose Garden to the celebrated vision realized by the Kennedy administration in 1961.
