Well, there was. Fred Rogers died Feb 27, 2003. Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood was a bit after my time. But my son always loved his show.

 

Mr. Rogers was also an ordained minister in the United Presbyterian Church.

He was also a special forces sniper during Vietnam, and personally responsible for taking out some important enemy leaders.

Quite a few contradictions in the man.

Always remember that you�re unique. Just like everyone else.

Bogus. Fred Rogers never served in the military.

I agree. I can't imagine him as a sniper either. He would be trying to aim a paper meche rifle.

 

He was a great man. I loved Mr. Roger's Neighborhood growing up. I also loved Mr. Dressup. He was a badass too.

 

I liked Mr. Dressup a little more I think. I thought Finnegan was very cute when I was little. I always wanted to shred Casey through a wood chipper though.

My favorite Fred Rogers story was a Candid Camera episode in which a hotel told Fred Rogers they would have to take his TV away. They expected him to be upset. He couldn't have cared less. (Fred didn't watch much TV and certainly didn't have time for it on his trip anyway.)

 

They tried and tried to get under his skin but he wouldn't take the bait. They finally gave up and admitted what was going on. IIRC, he didn't even know what Candid Camera was. ;)
