Happy Birthday Mr. Rogers

Fred Rogers (March 20, 1928 – February 27, 2003)

World’s most famous neighbor. This was a man, a good man. Now we got frickin’ Spongebob.

Mr Rogers

In 1969 Mr. Rogers spoke before Congress defending funding for TV programming for kids. Seven minutes later Sen. John Pastore, a grouchy old curmudgeon, granted 20 million dollars.  Watch it to see Mr. Roger’s kindness, sincerity, and authenticity turn Pastore into an ally and give him goosebumps.
