What a truly amazing man. Public television should be fully funded if for no other reason than to honor his memory. (I used to watch the show with David and Laura because I needed to hear Mr. Rogers tell me that he liked me just the way I was. Some days, it would be good to hear it again.)


And he was so wonderfully calming for the kids at the end of the day. He kept them occupied and calmed them down so I could fix dinner.


When I was in graduate school, we really did live in Mr. Rogers' neighborhood. One day one of my professors was out walking with his (then) toddler and there, across the street, was Mr. Rogers himself. Mr. Rogers saw them, crossed the street, and spoke with the little boy at some length. It wasn't an act - he was really like that in person. Something to remember in these cynical times.
