Quick Fixer: I, in point of fact, prepared for the day. I wore my favorite sweater to work.
kumanoki: FirstNationalBastard: Tallman: Want to do something to celebrate Mr. Rogers' birthday? Let's try to make it an official holiday.No way.Think about it... would Mister Rogers want a holiday for himself?No.That is a true.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Glenford: Mr. Robinson?[img2-1.timeinc.net image 300x400]You laugh, but they met once backstage. David Newell (Mr. McFeely) has the picture and showed it in a Mr. Rogers documentary some time back.
sure haven't: /it's good to be curious, about many things
WhyteRaven74: Dusk-You-n-Me: In 1969, Fred Rogers appeared before the United States Senate Subcommittee on Communications. His goal was to support funding for PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, in response to significant proposed cuts by President Nixon.And he went back to DC to testify against legislation that would have in effect killed VCRs.

RatMaster999: If there really is a kind and loving God, He probably wears a zippered cardigan.You did good work, Mr. Rogers. I would've been honored to meet you and bought you a drink, a cup or tea or something similar.
LDM90: Fark loves him, we get it.

kittiekat21: Seems as if only one other farker (and myself) were scared shiatless of this guy and his menagerie of creepy puppets. When I was a little girl, Id watch a little bit of the intro and stuff, but as soon as that toy train came around to go to that creepy land of make believe or whatever the crap it was, I changed the channel! That being said, as an adult I can now appreciate the show more knowing he was just a gentle soft spoken man who wanted to spread love...wait...thats creepy too...oh man...forget it.
JBKMDX: ryant123: JBKMDX: Happy Birthday Mr. Rogers.[static.giantbomb.com image 850x637]I know he's been dead for quite awhile though, but I really didn't wanna type something really long mentioning how he was one of the few geniunely good people in the world. He was a minister, but never preached it on his show or tried to convert people to it. He spoke of the idea that everyone was special, no matter who they were. It's just sad that kids born after 2001 don't get to grow up with such a great role model like Mr. Rogers. He's dearly missed in this day and age.Better?
sararenne: the crayon episode....I probably saw every episode from 1978 (when I was about 1) until I was 12 or 13...They run together for me, but I clearly remember the episode they went to Crayola and you learned how crayons are made....I think about that almost every time I see a Crayola box
