A Not-So-Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Fred Rogers died late last week. I'm not sure what I want to say; probably something between the Post-Gazette's quasi-eulogy and Shields's "thank you for always reminding me what a beautiful day it was."

I don't remember much of actually watching the show -- I was, after all, pretty young at the time -- but I remember feeling a bit more relaxed while I was watching. Mr. Rogers was just a nice guy who shared his imagination with the kids. There were no catchy ditties to help you remember the numbers or alphabet, no skits to make an educational point. Just a nice guy.

And he will be missed.
