“Bring him here. Question him we will!” as Yoda quaintly put it. Part-time Chicago resident George Lucas will have more than enough time on his hands, now that he’s sold his company, Lucasfilm, for $4.05 billion in cash and Disney stock, which he’s indicated he intends to liquidate through health and education charities. Think: who has been more obsessed than Lucas with unfair taxation in the latter-day “Star Wars” movies? On the big screen, he’s been a one-man town hall of bought-and-bussed-in Tea Partiers.
