Great show when it first started. One of the best characters was Roosevelt Franklin. A black puppet who would take over the class when the teacher left the room. He would sing the lesson for his fellow students. But all of a sudden he was gone. And the was the start if political correctness on sesame st. Too bad. There was nothing wrong with the Roosevelt segment. The puppet was dang intelligent. Should have not changed the show. Went downhill from there! Sad

Sesame Street is what taught parents to be lazy and let the TV babysit (read: indoctrinate) the kids, while parents, free from the burden of supervising them, pursued jobs out of necessity and adult interests out of their own selfishness. Kids were soon switching channels to more seductive programming as parents noticed and cared less or not at all. Look at "disadvantaged" youth today--purportedly the beneficiaries of the great Sesame Street legacy--who "graduate" without basic reading/math skills, short attention spans, and nonexistent respect for others. SS was no match for the real damage done by the welfare system.

I have a theory that Sesame Street was behind the sudden appearance of ADHD and ADD in the 80’s. The show presented “education” in very short and entertaining skits which kids got accustomed to. Then, when they went off to school, they were expected to sit still in a desk for 45 minutes to an hour at a time and absorb information that was no longer entertaining. So they got bored, then restless, then started acting up and became problem children. The medical community’s solution was, of course, drugs.

I liked Sesame Street when it first began - it's insufferable now. But for good, entertaining and learning give me Captain Kangaroo any time. I owe my love of reading to him.

My favorite memory is Oscar the Grouch calling Elmo a little red menace. This was way back in the late 80’s.

My younger brother and I were Captain Kangaroo kids as toddlers, and that gave my mother a blessed half-hour to get ready for her day (mostly). That was our televiewing for the day. By the time Sesame Street came along, we were a shade old, but as a school librarian, Mom always was a little suspicious of it as she didn’t think the SS-trained kids coming into her school had benefited much from its “educating”, except for some kids (and there were a lot of them) who got absolutely nothing else, meaning no books, no reading with parents, at home. Sad.

President Biden and at least four of his top lawyers and advisers tried to keep their fellow Americans from learning of the mishandling of classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president, according to a bombshell report Friday.

Axios reports pro-gun control mayors attended this week’s U.S. Conference of Mayors in D.C., where they blamed gun makers for crime problems. Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Quinton Lucas (D), a member of Bloomberg-founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns, said, “Mayors are on the frontlines of our nation’s gun violence epidemic and that’s why we won’t shy away from naming those who make the guns that are killing our communities.”

As soon as news broke regarding a second — now third (or is it fourth?) — trove of classified documents found at President Biden’s Delaware home (in addition to the initial find at the Penn Biden Center), people (at least those with a modicum of intellectual curiosity) began questioning who might have had access to the home and, by extension, the documents. Media requests for the visitor log were met with a shrug — no such logs are kept for the President’s private residence.

Alec Baldwin will be criminally charged in connection with the “Rust” shooting that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead, prosecutors said Thursday. New Mexico prosecutors will charge Baldwin and armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed with two federal counts of involuntary manslaughter over the death of Hutchins on the “Rust” film set in October 2021, when a real bullet was loaded into a prop gun. Assistant director David Halls, who handed Baldwin the loaded gun, accepted a misdemeanor charge in a plea deal.

Texas has seen a drastic drop in abortions since the Supreme Court issued its Dobbs decision in June 2022, which overruled Roe v. Wade and returned the issue of abortion to the states. Data from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission shows that only three abortions occurred in the state in August of 2022, each of which was deemed “medically necessary,” Fox News reported on Sunday. “Compared with the 2,596 abortions recorded in the state in June 2022, the number in August represents a decrease of nearly 99 percent. Sixty-eight abortions were performed in July,” according to the report.

Russia today warned that Germany's decision to send dozens of modern tanks to Ukraine is 'extremely dangerous' and will 'take the conflict to a new level'. Bringing an end to a bitter row, Chancellor Olaf Scholz finally confirmed today Berlin will send its own German-made Leopard 2 tanks to the front lines and allow Nato allies to deliver some of theirs. Scholz even teased further deliveries of air defence systems, heavy artillery and multiple rocket launchers and says Germany 'intends to expand what we have delivered', a major U-turn on the chancellor's previous reluctance.  Russia branded the move a 'blatant provocation'

Billions of dollars worth of U.S. weapons are on the negotiating table between Russian strongman Vladimir Putin and Afghanistan’s Taliban government, according to at least one insider. Presidentish Joe Biden’s bungled bugout from Afghanistan resulted in a windfall for the new radical Islamic government, including artillery, attack helicopters, and thousands of HUMVEES, machine guns, radios — all left behind as our orderly withdrawal degenerated into a rout. The Department of Defense estimates the total value of the gear Biden left behind at a whopping $7.12 billion, and now Putin is reportedly offering to buy whatever he and the battered Russian Army need.
