Million Puppet March to support public broadcasting in America

The Million Puppet March (formerly Million Muppet March, renamed because PBS can't afford to be perceived as political) is on for today in DC.

Everyone's meeting at at Lincoln Park (East of the Capitol building), and the march begins as I publish this blog post, at 11am ET.

At 1pm, a rally at the Capitol Reflecting Pool, which goes through 230pm.

I hope to be there! There's a live webcast.

Jill Buzby contributed the photo below to the Million Puppet March Facebook page. "My middle child holding my childhood Grover and Kermit dolls," she explains. "They're nearly 40 years old!"


Antisemitic Elmo

Elmo was removed from Central Park zoo in an ambulance after embarking on a anti-semitic tirade: "the scariest Elmo I've ever seen in my life," observed a bystander. Video link via Gothamist, The Awl, etc.

Update: There is also footage of Antisemitic Elmo screaming "TOUCH MY SHIT," etc.
