Secret Mickey Mouse talks in Washington this week By Al Kamen, The Washington Post WASHINGTON _ What was Walt Disney Chairman Michael Eisner doing on Capitol Hill Tuesday that was so hush-hush his office refused to even confirm he was in Washington?

Davis III, R-Va., a sensible thing to do since Davis is co-chairman of the House Information Technology Working Group, and Eisner is much interested in such matters. Other readers reported Eisner was at the White House in a one-on-one with Vice President Gore in the afternoon, no staff allowed, complaining about National Telecommunications and Information Administration chief Larry Irving "s letter to the Federal Communications Commission last month. Seems Irving's letter, reflecting administration policy, urged keeping in place the regulatory ...
