Rich Manhattan moms are hiring disabled to cut Disney World lines

Two children wait eagerly to ride the Dumbo ride at Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Fla.

This final note today which, honestly, I just can't.

Even if you've never been there, you know the lines at Disney World are long, yes?

That gets us to an item in the The New York Post today: Moms in Manhattan have found a way around that, it seems. They hire disabled people to pose as family members. That gets 'em to a special entrance right at the front of the line. The cost? $130 an hour is the going rate.

Also? I give up.
