Taliban Dan was the meanest man I ever knew... ('Sesame Street' Wednesday)

Congratulations to 'Sesame Street' for its 41st birthday. We can all take comfort in the fact that - unlike in the mid-'90s - there's a Senate to stop the House's upcoming war against public broadcasting.

Back in the mid-'70s, Johnny Cash appeared on the ol' Ses and sang a song that foreshadowed the eventual rise of Taliban Dan Webster:

That song could easily be about Taliban Dan Webster, couldn't it? Taliban Dan is a nasty man, after all. The line about how he'd "try real good to make things go wrong" is particularly fitting.

Oscar the Grouch is quite impressed by ol' Dan though.
