The Biggest Star... lives on Sesame Street

At the ADL conference, the appearance of Ernie solidified him as having Rock Star status. As you can see by the arm with the bracelets, I got the chance to get upclose and personal.

Of course, everyone taking pictures kept trying to shoo me closer to Ernie. I think they thought I was scared of the sweet fella.

Ernie is generally a nice guy, and a friend of Zion, but I've heard that he has a quick temper and a mean left uppercut. So, it's probably good that you kept your distance.

Funny. I wasn't expecting to see Ernie was involved with the ADL.

Bin Laden's Felt-Skinned Henchman?

Thanks tran sient. I've since been reminded. Poor Bert, lol.

gindy, Ernie was there because of the partnership between some of the Sesame Street characters and The ADL on a program called the New Anti-Bias Preschool Education Project: http://www.adl.org/presrele/education%5F01/3938%5F01.asp

Probably Alison Weir was writing again for the Palestinian Information Centre.

Wow! ..., you "touched" Ernie ...


Is he the "softy" that his image portrays or is he a real "hard body?" ;)


Also, did he "hit" on ya'?

SA -- I'm not sure I should give up his secrets. Let's just say we had a moment. ;)

"New Anti-Bias Preschool Education Project"

I was wondering because it did seem a little odd (unless there were alot of children there). I wasn't familiar with the program.
