Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Poor Big Bird. Mitt Romney wants to throw him under the bus. That's what my liberal Facebook friends are saying. Romney will deregulate Wall Street and crack down on Sesame Street.
Oh, the humanity.
How about some facts?
Shows like Sesame Street are multi-million dollar enterprises capable of thriving in the private market. According to the 990 tax form all nonprofits are required to file, Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 -- nearly a million dollars -- in compensation in 2008. And, from 2003 to 2006, "Sesame Street" made more than $211 million from toy and consumer product sales.
Big Bird makes a cool $50 million a year. And thanks to PBS being a nonprofit organization, he doesn't pay a dime in taxes. I think that's known as "Economic Patriotism". Or something.
So go ahead, tell me again why we need to borrow money from China to subsidize a fictional character who's richer than Mitt Romney.
Occupy Sesame Street! Because Big Bird isn't the 1%. He's the 0.001%. And it's
about time he paid his "fair share".
