Hello there It was a summer night in 2007, and a group of self-described geeks gathered in a basement to film their own TV show. Jen had met Mike - the guy with a basement studio - about four years before at Sesame Place, where he did lighting and sound and she dressed as Elmo, or sometimes Ernie. That evening, Jen was only herself, being interviewed for a faux talk show that also featured puppets. Chris, who had been friends with Mike since seventh grade at St. Bede the Venerable, was the talk-show host.

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.
