Today Bert & Ernie are feeling pretty upset (though not necessarily at the same time). I feel pretty upset today too, but unlike Bert, I know exactly why. If I have the time and the emotional stamina later, and if I decide that it is necessary to publish my thoughts and feelings rather than simply writing them out and keeping them private, I will go into more detail.
I suddenly realize that I've posted two Bert & Ernie sketches in a row that involve Ernie crying. I didn't do that on purpose, but it is strangely appropriate in light of recent events. More on that later.
