I do not know if Baud. has written on this, but in his book Virtual 
Worlds, B. Wolley observes that the failure of EuroDisney is predicated 
on the idea that Paris is already recognized as a them park in and of 
itself.  Move this into Baudrillard and we realize that euro is just 
another simulation next to a simulation, therefore the contradiction is 
not present.  

This may relate to Baud's Beauborg project, but that comes later in 
Sim/Sim, so I'll hold off a bit.

just joining in,
