ELMO IN THE HOUSE: Let me guess: Elmo said public television needs more money, and those naughty Republicans want to take it away? UPDATE: I was close. Best of the Web quotes CNN as reporting that
"in what may be the first appearance of a Muppet before a congressional committee, 'Sesame Street' favorite Elmo donned his best suit and tie and took his cause to Capitol Hill." The puppet "gave evidence before the Education Appropriations Subcommittee to urge more spending on music research and musical instruments for school programs." Fine by us--provided they can find a way to tax "Sesame Street" merchandise to pay for it.
