Sesame Street brings in more than twice as much as the Batman franchise, for example. It hardly needs taxpayer subsidies.

Yes, it does, so do all the other children's programming on PBS. I have seen what passes for children's television on cable and network TV. They are tools for advertisers, and kids get very little education. At least with shows like Sesame Street, Sid the Science Kid, The Electric Company, Arthur and Curious George they aren't advertising tools. PBS makes sure those shows are doing what they are meant to do - entertain and educate.

For Mitt Romney, his millions pay for another home.
