Remember that tender moment at the Smithsonian last year, when we gazed upon the cardigan of Mr. Rogers?
A few months ago, I was knocked out by the following clip—it’s 1969, and Mr. Rogers is in the lion’s den, testifying before the Senate in an attempt to preserve funding for PBS. I filed it away to show you on Mr. Rogers’ birthday. He would have been 79 today; he moved on to the Neighborhood of Make Believe four years ago.
Boohooing my way through a YouTube clip! As my favorite Mr. Rogers puppet, Henrietta Pussycat, would say: Meow meow happy birthday, Mr. Rogers meow! Meow meow what a guy meow.
