Everyone has cravings. But what the Zitelman sisters have - well, that might be better described as an addiction. Their substance of choice? Tahini, the roasted sesame butter that, they insist, is so much more than an ingredient in hummus or a drizzle for shawarma. They spread it on toast, whisk it into salad dressing, and substitute it for oil in baked goods. And, over the last eight months, they've made tahini their business, as co-owners of the sesame-powered start-up Soom Foods.

POOR ROY EDWARD BELL. The 58-year-old Fayetteville, W.Va., man died suddenly Oct. 19, so he did not live to see Pennsylvania Senate Bill 46 leap one more hurdle three days later toward becoming law. If passed, SB46 - dubbed the SESAME bill (as in "Stop Educator Sexual Abuse, Misconduct and Exploitation") - could prevent school employees accused of sexual perversions from hurting kids the way a sicko teacher hurt Roy Bell's son, Jeremy. That sicko, Edgar Friedrichs Jr., had been accused in 1972 of sexual improprieties with students while he taught in the Prospect Park, Delaware County, school district.

Last year, Big Bird's job security was thrust into the political spotlight. This year, it's his health insurance. In a letter sent last week to President Obama, U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick contended that the Affordable Care Act had caused Sesame Place, one of Bucks County's biggest tourist attractions, to terminate health benefits for its part-time employees. "This law is hurting real people in my district and around the country," the Bucks County Republican wrote. A spokesman for SeaWorld, the amusement park's parent company, confirmed Wednesday that the company was cutting the weekly work limit for part-time employees from 32 to 28 hours.

KEVIN CLASH , the man behind Elmo , is resigning from "Sesame Street" after a second man alleged that the puppeteer began an inappropriate relationship with him when he was underage. Cecil Singleton , 24, claimed that he was 15 when their relationship started. He says he and Clash did not have sex back then but engaged in some, well, let's call it heavy petting. He said that he and Clash did not engage in the Clintonian definition of sexual intercourse until Singleton reached 18. Singleton is seeking $5 million in damages from Clash.

Shante is a pleasant 13-year-old who loves Sesame Street characters, so she was thrilled recently to visit Sesame Place, where she met Big Bird, Elmo, and some of the others she loves to watch on television. Later, she was delighted to have lunch with them. She also played games and toured the park. Other things that make Shante happy are listening to Justin Bieber, playing basketball, watching the Philadelphia Eagles, and anything in the color pink. She can be shy when meeting new people, but soon warms up. Shante enjoys going to school, where she benefits from special education classes and is learning life skills.
