    Link: Mr. Rogers - An Unexpected Hero - I always liked him but now I admire him. His birthday was this week, he would`ve been 85.

    Back when kids shows talked about serious topics like divorce.

    Really, I think a lot of people here would`ve gone ape$hit if Mr. Rogers were on today. A Presbyterian minister on public television wouldn`t fly with some of you.

    Then how do we know we can trust what you say, Andrew... if that is your real name.

    When I was a little girl, I watched Captain Kangaroo. Maybe Mr. Rogers was on then, but I never heard of him until I was grown up. When my first little girl was living with me overseas, she watched Mr. Rogers. He was a wonderful, kind person. The world is a little bit sadder without Mr. Rogers. Oh, and Captain Kangaroo was cool, too.
    It`s a beautiful day in the neighborhood...

    "A Presbyterian minister on public television wouldn`t fly with some of you."

    I don`t define people by their titles or letters after their names, I define them by their message, what they "preach", if you will. Fred Rogers was *always* about acceptance, tolerance, turning the other cheek and love. What more is there to say about him?

    Let`s just hope nothing in the vein of Jimmy Savile shows up:( He really sounds like one of the good guys.

    Cracked recently did a piece on Mr Rogers. Almost made me jealous we didn`t have him in my childhood.

    (The stolen car thing is probably a myth, though.)

    "A Presbyterian minister on public television wouldn`t fly with some of you."

    One of the best things about his show is that you never knew he was a minister because he never talked about religion per se. He was just a very nice man who taught me things and talked about how to deal with life situations and being kind to people. If all religious people were like him, I might not be an atheist now. Really, he taught people how to be a good person without all the religious judgmental bs.

    He has to be the world nicest person. I never really got into him as a child, but now I love him.

    He may of had his flaws, but I`d say the good things he did and stood for are something for all of us to aim for.
