I'm a bit surprised at how sad it made me to hear this morning that Mister Rogers died today, at 74. Even though a lot of kids thought he was uncool, I always loved Mr. Rogers and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Great music, puppets, and everyone is nice to each other, or if they're not, it's easily worked out. Some interviews with him in the article show him to be exactly what he was on the show, an incredibly nice polite person who wanted to give children something good, educational, and instill in them the ideal of being a good neighbor. It feels like my childhood is really truly over.
