Disney cuts board by four members, strengthens independence (http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/business/5044119.htm) - AP, 1/27/03

QuikQuote: The Walt Disney Co. is cutting its board of directors by four, a move that will leave the board with 13 members, including nine independent directors.
The company said Monday that veteran members Sidney Poitier, Robert A.M. Stern, Reveta Bowers and Andrea Van de Kamp will not stand for re-election in March during its annual shareholders meeting.

I wonder if this changes anything about the "Song of the South" release. It was mentioned elsewhere that without Sidney Poitier on the board, this would have a better chance of happening.
