I have another thing to say, one triggered by a link I stumbled across on mental_floss's blog.
Watch Mr. Rogers getting his Lifetime Achievement Award.
Reader, I teared up.
At my birthday Muppet marathon, I was reflecting on how very lucky I was to be born at just the right time. How very lucky I was to be born into the age of Sesame Street and the Muppets. And now I'm thinking how very lucky I was to have Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. They seriously do not have stuff like this anymore. I was born at just the right time, into a world with Jim Henson and Fred Rogers in it.
