Good-bye, Mr. Rogers

Beloved children’s programming legend Fred Rogers died early this morning at age 74, from stomach cancer. Song composer, puppeteer, Presbyterian minister–Mr. Rogers’ love for kids took us all, from 1968 to 2001, into the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Good-bye, Mr. Rogers, and thank you for being a part of my childhood. You were a blast.
