Unemployment lines on Sesame Street

    Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit producer of Sesame Street and other kids' programs, is cutting about one-fifth of its work force because of the economic downturn.

    The New York-based company said Wednesday that it's eliminating 67 of 355 staff positions.

    Declaring it is "not immune to the unprecedented challenges of today's economic environment," the company pronounced a need "to operate with fewer resources in order to achieve our strategic priorities.''


    The story is not a good one, but I'm probably going to hell because I laughed out loud at the reader comments, one of which said sunny days weren't sweeping the clouds away. Then there was this gem:

    How much tighter can the belt get? They've already got one guy living in a trash can, two guys sharing a one bedroom apartment, and no one seems to wear clothes. I can't imagine what other cost saving measures could be implemented.

    Crap! I swear to God, I searched for Sesame Street and found nothing. It's there now, of course.

    Today's episode is brought to you by the letters D, B and the number -2. Negative numbers? That's right, kids. Better start learning about them now: You'll be seeing a lot of them in the future.
