C IS FOR CORRUPTION?: The U.S. Agency for International Development has ended its funding a $20 million project to develop a Pakistani version of the children's TV show "Sesame Street" amid allegations of corruption.

NOT EASY BEING GREEN: U.S. officials had hoped the show would help improve education in a country where one-third of primary school-age children are not in class. It was also meant to increase tolerance.

THE COUNT: The U.S. government has paid a Lahore puppet theater $10 million to co-produce the show with its American creators. The original show first aired in 1969, and the U.S. government has helped produce versions in about 20 other countries.
