Me Want Cookie!

Fred — Your reference to my personal hero Cookie Monster reminded me of a rumor I had heard that he was going to become “Veggie Monster” and stop eating cookies. This had a ring of truth because many people — including my former boss Bill Frist–have shown up on Sesame Street to forward the fight against childhood obesity. Contrary to what I had heard, however, it appears that Cookie Monster will, for the most part, remain his true cookie-loving self. Score a point (or at least half a point) for the war against the Fun Police.
