Mr. Rogers says goodbye

Well he doesn’t because he died seven years ago, but starting this Monday PBS will be pulling the show from television due to declining ratings.? “It sucks, man,” said Brian Linder, a South Carolina writer who grew up watching the show on a wood-paneled television and now watches it on a flat-screen TV with his twin daughters. “That’s not a Mr. Rogers thing to say. But maybe in this case he’d even say it.”? Yes, yes he would.? [Chicago Tribune]

    It’s sad that the show’s pace doesn’t fit with the general attention span, these days. He, indeed, made you feel special. I hope PBS has a DVD set because I want it for Christmas.
