Marketing frenzy aside...But where is the educational value? That is what I was wondering. At least on Sesame Street (besides those great muppets) you learned how to count to ten in Spanish. If I had a kid, I'd rather read to them instead of setting them in front of the tube.


ps: I also wonder, why is everyone else I know or have known going mad, on medication, committing suicide, being incarcerated, pregnant, or being hospitalized on me? I thought Spring was a time of renewal and rejuvenation, not death and self-destruction. Uh, nevermind, thinking aloud again....
