Children’s Television Workshop http://wmot.org en Burriss on Media: Big Bird http://wmot.org/post/burriss-media-big-bird <p>I have to start with a confession or disclosure or whatever the politically correct term is: I have personally met both Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. Not just some quick meet-and-greet, but some real, honest-to-goodness, hang-out-together time.<br><br> Well, maybe it was only four or five hours. And I really don’t think they remember when and where and why we met. But I do, and I have the pictures to prove it.<br><br> So when I heard that presidential candidate Mitt Romney wants to fire my good friend Big Bird, well, you can understand why I was so upset.<br> Mon, 08 Oct 2012 10:42:05 +0000 Dr. Larry Burriss 16498 at http://wmot.org Burriss on Media: Big Bird
