8-Year-Old Girl's Angry Letter To Romney

8-Year-Old Girl's Angry Letter To Romney, Cecelia Crawford takes issue with the Republican nominee's threat to cut off PBS's funding. 8-Year-Old's Letter to Romney Urges Him to Not Fire Big Bird, People are still talking about Wednesday night's presidential debate, but regular joes and political pundits standing around the water cooler aren't the only ones putting in their two cents. Even youngsters are getting in on the controversy sparked by GOP nominee Mitt Romney's remarks, particularly those about beloved PBS character Big Bird. Eight-year-old Cecelia Crawford of Alabama wrote a letter to Romney pleading for him not to get rid of Big Bird.

Romney had said, "I'm gonna stop the subsidy to PBS ... I like PBS, I love Big Bird ... but I am not going to keep spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for." Cecelia and others were upset about potentially losing the long-running "Sesame Street" and other PBS shows. Cecelia's handwritten letter reads as follows:

"I saw you on the debate last night and you said you would cut off PBS kids with Sesame Street on it. It was my favorite show on Earth. But now I'm 8 years old. When I grow up, I'm going to get married and I want my kids to watch it. So do not cut it off. You find something else to cut off! Don't hurt little kids. They need Sesame Street where they can learn from it. Save Big Bird and his friends."
