Sadness: Kevin Clash resigns from Sesame Street

Via Maybe it's just me...

Sesame Workshop’s mission is to harness the educational power of media to help all children the world over reach their highest potential. Kevin Clash has helped us achieve that mission for 28 years, and none of us, especially Kevin, want anything to divert our attention from our focus on serving as a leading educational organization.

Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from Sesame Street. This is a sad day for Sesame Street.

I worried this was going to happen. Sadness, is right!

Wait! What?

Elmo isn't real?

becca, I imagine the same will happen that happened after Jim Henson's death. They'll find someone else to do Elmo's voice. :(

Mitchell, I have a hard time believing it...but like my aunt said, I know if it is true, Clash should've known better, but I remember the way I was when I was that age. God help any man I set my sights on. I mean...if I did that sort of thing.

Mind of Mine, do we need to have that conversation about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny? ;)
