Steve B (42864) writes "The Senate Democratic leadership has just written a letter to the president of Disney complaining about alleged misrepresentation of history in an upcoming 9/11 "docudrama". You don't have to look very hard between the lines to read a "Nice broadcast license ya got there... shame if something was to happen to it..." message.
