    They just had a news blurb on the Today Show--it showed Elmo in a suit and tie testifying before a Senate Education Committee, encouraging them to appropriate more funding for music and music education. It was pretty funny. It's sad when a preschool Muppet can teach your Senate a thing or two about education. Hopefully they listened.

    Hey Tiger,

    Beautiful little baby there in your arms by the way. You must be on top of the world!

    Here are a few links about the Elmo in Washington coverage.

    CNN Article: Mr. Elmo goes to Washington
    There's a Kevin Clash profile linked on this page as well.

    They'll likely be a lot of stories about this hit the wire in the next 24 hours.

    Actually, my puppet has been running for President for the past 2 elections. We went to Wash. D.C. and put up signs for him while we were there. He'll be campaigning on my website in 2 more years, so if any of you wants a puppet President, vote for "Scary" Larry Wolf! Thank you...
