I had a 'Roseanne Rosannadana' moment when I saw the headline for this article.

Why is Disney removing the Lazy RIVER from the pool area? Is there a problem with the filtration system and swimmers are getting sick from the water? Are people getting hurt while sloshing around? And what will Disney put in its place if it takes out the Lazy RIVER?

Oh, the article is talking about Djuan Rivers. . . .

Never mind.
