The First Lady made a charming video with Sesame Street‘s Elmo about encouraging habits of healthy eating and smart  living — with the nice tag “You’re your child’s best role model.”   It’s possible that I am the last person in the western hemisphere to know about this PSA — which, apparently, was made in May.  But  I only saw it for the first time last night when I went to to catch up on this week’s episode of FlashForward.*


*FlashForward (Thursday nights on ABC) combines the maddeningly intriguing ambiguities of Lost with the unalloyed adrenaline of 24 (at least it has for three episodes),  and it is phenomenal TV.   Check it out now and you can thank me later.
