In Memoriam of the Day: While we honor the memory of legendary puppeteer Jim Henson on what would have been his 75th birthday, it's important to take a moment or five to pay tribute to another inimitable contributor to our collective childhood: Theodor Geisel -- better know to most as Dr. Seuss -- who passed away twenty years ago today.
