• Barack Obama Reads "Where the Wild Things Are"

    Oh man, tough week for cherished memories of our shared impressionable youth, eh? In honor of children's author┬áMaurice Sendak — who sailed away to the great wild rumpus in the sky last night — here's the President reading Sendak's most lasting contribution to collective consciousness a few weeks ago

    Watch Maurice Sendak's last interview with none other than Stephen Colbert after the jump.
