Sesame Street on Eagle Street

Card playing robot dogs not your thing? Head down to the Governor's Mansion today where Sesame Street's Elmo will appear at an event hosted by the Office of Mental Health. No word on whether it will be the real Elmo appearing or someone dressed in an Elmo suit. An appearance by the real Elmo would be noteworthy, because it would mean a visit from Emmy Award winning puppeteer Kevin Clash, the man behind the immensely popular red furry Muppet.

My youngest is beyond Sesame Street days, but if I remember correctly, Elmo always seemed a little retarded appeared to be developmentally disabled, so he's perfect for this event.
