happy birthday, mr. rogers!




mr. mcfeely wants you to wear a cardigan sweater today in honor of what would've been mr. rogers's 80th birthday!


free association about mr. rogers:

my bruddy sitting on his potty (age two or whatever) watching mr. rogers (his other favorite show was julia child).

davy rothbart's wonderful piece for this american life (and subsequent opinion piece in the new york times) in which he goes to fred rogers for advice about his conflicts with his own neighbors.

i truly thought the lyrics from the bob dylan song "lay lady, lay" were talking about lady elaine. creepy. like, "lady elaine...lay across my big brass bed..."
