You'd think -- what with getting the revival of "Jekyll & Hyde ready for its 13 week-long, limited engagement at the Marquis Theater -- that director Jeff Calhoun wouldn't have any time left for his other Broadway show, Disney's Newsies. But that's where you'd be wrong.
In today's travel environment of surcharges and extra fees, it may seem hard to believe that there are actually still freebies out there for the taking. The key is in knowing what to look for and where.
A recent Change.org online petition to get the Disney Store to "stop selling sexist Avengers T-shirts" has received nearly 6,000 signatures. The shirts in question include one for boys that reads, "Be a Hero," and one for girls that reads, "I Need a Hero."
Word is that Dreamworks, a sub-studio of Disney, is about to make a movie on the Boston Globe's January 2002 investigative report on pedophilia and the Archdiocese of Boston. If Dreamworks practices moviemaking artfully, then grace might shine through.
Annette Funicello was truly America's girl next door -- the girl every boy wanted to bring home and every girl wanted as their best friend. From Mouseketeer to Beach Bunny to Skippy Peanut Butter spokeswoman -- we loved her.

In my Wealthy Investor program we call these three stocks Superior Dow Stocks due to their tendency to rise over time based on consistent annual revenue growth. However, if their revenue were to decline year over year in 2013, then the "date" would end.
