Walt Disney - With or Without You

Q: I recently did a little math. As of February 13, 2010, The Walt Disney Company will have been without Walt Disney as long as it had Walt Disney. Has this milestone occurred to anybody at the company? And do you have any reflections on that?

A [Dave Smith]: Yes, a friend, Julian, sent me that same calculation several weeks before I received your question. Very interesting! The farther we get from Walt Disney the more important it is that we continue to make people aware of his contributions. Without Walt Disney we would have no company today.
