I hope this Sesame Street clip made you smile as it did me. Truth be told, few children at school may feel as sad as Burt about losing something. I once stumbled across my son’s winter jacket in piles of lost and found items lining the hallway where my classroom was located and, not only was my son not sad (or angry) at the lost, but he seemed not to have even noticed its loss. A recent NY Times article, “Lost and Found Yields Trove of Treasures at End of School Year,” considers the absence of logic in items traditionally found but rarely claimed by school’s end and the useful purpose many of these “spoils”can serve. Enjoy the entire article here.
