Well, by now the entire Blogosphere has taken the opportunity to eulogize Fred "Mister" Rogers, who died early today, and I shall be no exception. That being said, I gotta tell you straight up: I was not a fan as a kid. Never ever watched Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Thought it was boring. I was more of a Captain Kangaroo man myself. Still, when I grew up to be a man (can you hear that song now?) and had kids, my son Britt watched Mister Rogers regularly when he was very small, and liked it very much if I recall correctly. Anyone that gave my son happiness in his not-always-happy life is all right with me, so rest in peace, Fred Rogers. A multitude of kids big and small will mourn your passing.
