There’s been plenty of talk online the last few days about the 40th birthday of Sesame Street, and it’s given me a chance to relive a huge chuck of my childhood, and well beyond it. Not only was I raised on this stuff, but so are my kids. And who knows, perhaps their kids too one day. It really was / is / will be something special. So much more than simple children’s programing. It’s cultural impact smacked me right up side the face, and I am better for it.
