The pitch Jim Henson made to CBS for The Muppet Show. Historical yes, but great content as well. Sort of feels a bit like Network [via GeeksAreSexy]

Neat to see that our society does read, with a Gallup survey showing about 48% of people are reading a book or novel. However, it leaves plenty of questions unanswered. While we are reading, are we reading Harry Potter and The Hunger Games or are we reading classics from Goethe and Mark Twain to more modern classics like Catch 22 or 1984 (at least outside the demands of classrooms), and perhaps the question of if it even matters. It'll take time and further studies to understand the enviroment, but as someone with an evergrowing slush pile of literature, it's good to know I'm not alone...
