Big Bird is Out of Touch

Perhaps you saw the recent New York Crimes Times article that  notes that the early episodes of Sesame Street are not suitable for children.  According to a warning on the DVDs, “Sesame Street: Old School” is adults-only: “These early ‘Sesame Street’ episodes are intended for grown-ups, and may not suit the needs of today’s preschool child.”  The Times writer sarcastically notes:

The masonry on the dingy brownstone at 123 Sesame Street, where the closeted Ernie and Bert shared a dismal basement apartment, was deteriorating. Cookie Monster was on a fast track to diabetes. Oscar’s depression was untreated…. cows eating common grass, not grain improved with hormones. Cows are milked by plain old farmers, who use their unsanitary hands and fill one bucket at a time…

You have to agree that these is some real irony here… as the world has become more dangerous, and billions of people in the Middle East have become more ruthless, the American Leftists have decided that it’s better to shield their children from reality.  It’s just like Bird Bird putting his head in the sand.
