This final note today, which I am reasonably sure is this week's sign the apocalypse is upon us: The news that Disney is offering a new service. A chance for girls 3 to 12 to have their likeness photographed in 3-D, and molded onto an actual princess figurine. Rapunzel, Cinderella, Snow White, the whole crew. $99.95 plus shipping and handling.

And I'm sadly not making this up.
