Several years ago an aunt gave me several shares of Disney stock as a birthday present. Every year they mail us the annual report, along with a ticket to the shareholders meeting and a voting form. They allow you to vote online nowadays, and so I went out to fill out the ballot.

It’s pretty easy to tell what to vote for: simply do the opposite of what Disney asks for. They want us to approve “the 2002 Executive Performance Plan” (Sean: “All those in favour of giving ourselves a 10% pay raise…”), and vote against independent accountants, labor standards in China and theme park safety reporting.

Everybody loves Disney, right?
