To he who taught us all how crayons, and pretzels, are made

Aw, RIP Mr. Rogers. I don't know about you, but he was a very important man in my childhood life. He and Sesame Street, man. I remember one time I was upset about something, and crying, and Mr. Rogers was on, and I was angry at him and yelling because he was acting like everything was all right and everything WASN'T all right. I remember shaking my balled-up tissue at him.



In England he came up in conversation and this girl Sarah said "what, that creepy old man?" People in England think he's CREEPY! One more reason why England sucks. Man, creepy, FU. Hey, and here's another thing that I appreciate now that I'm older -- he was a Presbyterian minister. And yet I don't remember him mentioning God or anybody ONCE. So he sort of taught the values of being a Christian or what have you, without the dogma and religious beliefs and what have you. Holy cow does that earn my respect, not many people seem to be able to do that. [Our born-again president springs to mind].

AND NO HE DOES NOT HAVE TATTOOS ON HIS ARMS, sheesh.

RIP Fred Rogers. The jazz on your show was solid.
