Tinky Winky unmasked!

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.
