The Teletubbies, the stars of my son A's current favorite show, have reunited to raise money for autism research. Also, for the first time, they reveal their true identities. I remember the early days of their show in the U.S., and I never got why so many parents turned up their noses and wouldn't allow their kids to watch the show. I remember one mother saying that it just didn't teach her kid anything. I never thought everything in a child's environment had to have a didactic purpose, and, hell, I thought it was amusing to discover who spilled the tubby custard.
