Sesame Street turns 40

When Sesame Street remains an oasis in television for kids and their parents to have a show which uses the medium of television for uplifting spirits and educatng kids on how to educate themelves! I loved everything i have ever been priveldged to do for them.

In a violent world, reinforced by what i call the mindset of the wardens of the Penetentiary of Bad Taste, Sesame Street is a blessing. Grownups need it as much as their kids!

We desperately need a Sesame Street for adults, to foster creativity and respect for one another, and inspire viewers to want to learn more. and then TURN OFF OUR TV SETS and go out into the world and CELEBRATE LIFE!!

We have an over-abundance of UN-Reality TV.

Let's hope, with the new global conciousness that the Internet offers, that those who control what we and our children see will step up to the plate and realize that the avalanche of swill which they are dumping upon us is NOT HAVING ANY BENEFICIAL VALUE TO OUR SOCIETY and that network TV should take a page in the book from BBC in England and CBC in Canada and program shows that are NOT BENEATH THE LEVEL OF WHAT SESAME STREET IS SHOWING FOUR YEAR OLDS!!!

If Sesame Street can help young kids IQs to go up, isn't it time that on the 40th anniversary of Sesame street, the programmers for Network TV should all take a vow to stop programming shows that BRING OUR NATION'S I.Q.DOWN???

Since life begins at 40, maybe this is the first day where Sesame Street's great work can be a wakeup call for network and cable TV to SHAPE UP start using their resources to do something of value for all of us who watch.

The airwaves are a public trust, not just a dumping ground for advertising with occasional interuptions of trash to fill in the gaps between commercials.

if Sesame Street can do it, SO CAN EVERYBODY!!

Happy Birthday Sesame Street!!

you are still, after all these years, the hippest show in town!!!
