Please don’t kill Elmo

The Bush Administration wants to slash the budget of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. This could have serious consequences:

The horror! I mean, I no longer watch Sesame Street (or at least not very often), but my mom insists that the Muppets taught me to read. Plus, Maria was my first crush. I loved it when she played Charlie Chaplin.

And without Bert and Ernie, there’d be no Avenue Q!
