"among one of the most"

Donald is one of the most famous Disney characters, next to Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Chip & Dale, and others.

To not include the word "among" implies that Donald is solely at the apex of Disney Fame, when that title belongs to Mickey Mouse. It makes more sense to say that he is a member of this famous collection of characters, which is why I put the "among" there.

Nevermind; now that I thought about it, you're right. It's redundant.

Wow, you guys are fast--or more likely I am slow. I wrote two different comments, but each was in conflict with one of your edits. I guess the case is closed, so I won't bother posting any arguments. --Eric Winesett 11:12, 9 November 2007 (CST)
