(somewhat random) Felicitations

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Modern Family, and especially to Steve Levitan, Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet, for your Emmy wins. Because it's my favorite sit-com, I feel validated when you win, so...thank you for winning, I guess. Also, thank you for making my favorite sit-com.

Today is a momentous and bittersweet date in Sesame Street history. Today, the 43rd season premiered. By coincidence (or is it?) today would have been Jim Henson's birthday. By funny coincidence, today is also Steve Whitmire's birthday, and by sad coincidence, today is also the anniversary of Jeff Moss' death--which makes me especially sad because Jeff Moss basically wrote the soundtrack to my entire childhood, and I never even knew his name until long after he had passed.

All things considered, I can think of no more fitting tribute than this:

My hat is off to all three of you gentlemen, as well as everyone who has ever been involved in Sesame Street, ever. Thank you.
