Sesame Street helps army children
US children's TV show Sesame Street is to be used to help American military families explain why a parent has to leave to serve overseas.
A DVD featuring popular character Elmo and his parents who are preparing for Elmo's dad to be deployed, will be handed out for free in August. The DVD, produced in both English and Spanish, also features interviews with real-life families.

Gang busted as cops find dope in Elmo box.
Here's an Elmo adventure you won't see on "Sesame Street." A $1 million-a-year Bronx drug ring that shipped heroin in a Sing With Elmo doll box was busted yesterday, authorities said. Seventeen suspected dealers were arrested after cops intercepted the smack in the toy box last week, as well as two other shipments of cocaine and marijuana.
