The Disney Look

The Disney Look

The Animatronic Abraham Lincoln no longer is the only worker bee at Disneyland with facial hair. The Walt Disney Co. will soon allow employees, presumably only the male ones, at Disneyland and Disney World to grow beards or goatees.

Disney also will allow Casual Fridays, but frankly we can’t quite see Honest Abe in a blue shirt and tan chinos.

Moose on the loose: An angry moose in Willow, Alaska, ran down and stomped an 82-year-old man, who was saved only when his 85-year-old wife whacked the beast with a shovel until it backed off.

If the shovel hadn’t worked, the wife’s next course of action would have been to call Sarah Palin.

“Mr. Speaker …”: President Barack Obama will deliver his fourth — and, Republicans hope, his final — State of the Union address at 6 Tuesday night. Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will give the GOP’s response.

In his speech, Obama is expected to lay out his election-year agenda, which includes ideas intended to appeal to the middle class and higher taxes on the wealthy.

In order to speed things along, the Republicans will hold their applause until Obama gets to the “God bless the United States of America” part.
