Roy Disney's resignation letter

reminds us that the "go to hell" resignation letter can be wrapped in heartfelt if you try hard, which is a good lesson for Gothamist and our peers who have been raised in an expletive-world. Disney writes things like, "I find this intolerable" (a step up from the "This situation is shit" we'd resort to) and signs off with "With sincere regret" (much nicer than "Screw you and yours"). Of course, the letter itself is kind of scary with a list of Michael Eisner's transgressions, so Gothamist guesses it'd be rated PG.

CNN on the Roy Disney resignation but, of course, Variety has the best headline for contretemps: Building a bitter Mouse flap. And the Mice Age questions everything Disney.
