Pooh Retcon

I'm not one of those purists who get infuriated by "reimaginings". After all, recent Disney renditions of Pooh and Co. bear only passing resemblance with A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard's original. But if Disney wants to update the Pooh series and infuse it with more energy, why not just update Christopher Robin instead of replacing him outright? I mean, A.A. Milne wrote the series for little Chris, and he was the one who named that ridiculous bear "Pooh". I don't even have anything against a sassy young girl - is the Hundred Acre Wood too small for the both of them?

(Hehheh - "bear" only passing resemblance)

Xbox 360 Acquisition Saga Update:

So I call Gamestop to see if they'd received my 360, and they ask for my name. After some delay, they tell me they're out. This sort of behavior may warrant civil disobedience.
