Did The Wall Street Journal just give us the plot for TOY STORY 3?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I'm supposed to be headed Pixar-way Friday morning and my big game plan is to pull the fire alarm and in the confusion sneak into Lasseter's office and soak up the atmosphere for a minute, become a super creative genius and then find as much as I can on TOY STORY 3.
Oh shit... I just typed that in a public forum. Well, damn. That plan's out the window now...
Anyway, while I think up something else to get me banned from Emeryville let's talk about what The Wall Street Journal has to say about TOY STORY 3. They open a story about big media companies keeping video games in-house as opposed to selling the rights to game companies with a description of TOY STORY 3.
Here's what they have to say:
In Pixar's coming movie "Toy Story 3," Woody the cowboy and his toy-box friends are dumped in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, leaves for college.
Interesting. Sounds like a direct continuation of the themes of abandonment from TOY STORY 3. Although maybe Andy didn't have a say in the matter and his mom just cleaned house and threw them out. Either way Andy's outta the picture.
Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are already coming back (I hope we get Rickles and the rest of the gang, too) and co-director of TOY STORY 2 Lee Unkrich has full directing responsibilities on this project. What do you folks think?
