I've become hooked on a new kids show that I've been watching with my kids. PEEP and the Big Wide World features three main characters: Peep, a little yellow chick; Chirp, a little red bird; and Quack, a kind of blobby purple duck. The animation is very simplistic, but the stories and characterizations are rich and wonderfully funny. The show is narrated by Joan Cusack and has a very catchy theme song sung by Taj Majal. I highly recommend checking it out.

Two sales agents for the company said that the RNC’s policy covers elective abortion.
