• The attempt by Walt Disney Co. to trademark the term “Seal Team 6” following the killing of Osama bin Laden by a team of Navy Seals was a shameless money grab. Critics and comedians ridiculed Disney for its attempt and the company later said it was abandoning its effort “out of deference to the Navy.” Whichever Disney executive advanced that bungled idea should be shown the door. • We note with sadness the recent death of Dr. Robert Watkins, who was medical director of DuPont for 40 years during the Delaware-based firm’s heyday in Kershaw County.
