Notes On A Fascist Disneyland

July 15, 1990

Readers of "Notes on a Fascist Disneyland," by Alan Berlow (May 20), may be interested to know that in 1989 Congress appropriated $250,000 in humanitarian assistance for Burma's courageous students. The fight was led by Dana Rohrabacher (R-Lomita), who expended considerable political capital securing financial aid for a pro-democracy movement that, unlike China's, has not enjoyed generous coverage from foreign correspondents and camera crews. To date, despite the desperate need of students living in Burma's remote and underdeveloped border regions for medical supplies and other necessities, these funds have yet to be disbursed by our sclerotic foreign aid bureaucracy.
