Baby “healthcare reform” Hillary on Seesame Street. Awwww.

Update on Julia, the Muppet with Autism:

She is great.

We watched the episode yesterday, and it was done so well. Julia displays clear, typical signs of autism that even kids recognize (flapping hands, wide eyes, lack of eye contact), and the gang on the street explains each of them, and then relates to them (flapping isn’t weird– big bird likes to flap, too!, etc.)

I’m still not in love with the HBO version of Sesame Street– it’s so slick and the intro to Elmo’s World is NOT AS GOOD, but they are still introducing tough concepts in really perfect ways. Thumbs up!
