This one of those deaths-of-people-I-only-know-through-popular-culture that actually had the power to make me tear up. Alaina Reed, aka Olivia from Sesame Street, died yesterday and I when I heard the news I actually had to stifle a sob. I mean: OLIVIA. She was awesome. She wore beads in her hair
If you were a Sesame Street fanatic in the late seventies and early eighties, these might make you cry, too:
RIP, Olivia. We’re sure going to miss you..
