happy birthday, Sesame Street

One of the finest learning tools of the technological age, the Children's Television Workshop's brilliant educational TV show Sesame Street celebrates its 40th anniversary today.

I grew up on the show, as its heyday matches my own youth. So many other formative teaching television has come and gone--The Electric Company, Schoolhouse Rock, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood--but after four decades, Sesame Street not only endures, but thrives.

In the words of Kermit the Frog, "Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!"
