Thoughts on Sesame Street....

Evidently, the popular PBS children's show has gotten into trouble with parents for featuring a songstress known more for revealing outfits and scandalous lyrics than musicality.  Now while I don't quibble with featuring prominent people on childrens' shows to acquaint them with the real world, I do have to wonder what they are thinking with a lot of their celebrity guests, many of whom lead quite scandalous public and private lives.

So are they acquainting kids with the world, or pushing the moral envelope?  I'm not quite sure, but I wouldn't be altogether surprised if they featured a band from Australia because, after all, the lead guitarist wears a schoolboy uniform on stage.  It would be wholesome, right? 

Maybe the Secretary of State could come, too, and prove that she was not really Brian Johnson.
