Today's episode is bought to you by the letter "S" for sad

Olivia from Sesame street has died at age 63 from breast cancer. Played by actress Alaina Reid Hall, Olivia was always one of my favourite "Real People" from Sesame Street.

This is a beautiful clip from the show (can't find the year);

Sesame street has a done a lot for teaching kids about diversity, tolerance and understanding.

Oooh, I remember Olivia - that's so sad. I remember Linda too. Even as a little kid I used to think she was cool.

Is it wrong that I 'got' the whole diversity thing from a young age?

Sesame Street was great!
