8 days in america

The result is a widening caste system that can turn an airplane into a microcosm of “The Hunger Games.” The elite bask in an airborne version of Panem, enjoying over-the-top frivolities distant from the tedium of normal life, while the masses scrap over scant resources, dreaming of revolution.
—  Sarah Lyall, New York Times, who spent 8 days in a row flying around America

On July 8, 1974, nine days after the America Sings attraction opened in Disneyland, 18-year-old Disneyland cast member Deborah Gail Stone died when she was crushed between two walls of the building. A narrow channel between a stationary wall and a rotating wall was open and Deborah was unfortunate enough to walk through this space as the rotating wall began to move. One of the audience members heard Deborah’s screams and notified park staff, although most people in the audience thought that Deborah’s death screams were all part of the show.
