In Charles Dickens’ home town, Chatham, plans are being laid to create an “entertainment complex including rides with a Dickens theme.” This is from the New York Times. Opening is scheduled for 2007.

I remember visiting Oxford a few years back. For the benefit of tourists, the city had provided an old-school Disney-type ride, in which one was placed in a conveyance and hauled around to various tableaux (with audioanimantronic figures), illustrating various periods in Oxford’s rich history. Unlike Disneyland, where the conveyance might have suggested a teacup, the conveyance at Oxford resembled an old-fashioned school desk.

Don’t you miss that tiny “handful of sources” though? It was so cute and itty-bitty. Cronkite shares a place on the (alphabetical) list with Roger Ebert and Osama Bin Laden
