Okay, no they didn't, but the picture of that statue of him in this NYTimes article makes him look like someone who died in a nuclear holocaust or Pompeii event. It's rather horrific and frightening.

Actually, he committed harakiri.

(Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?)

He was a great man. I remember meeting him as a child, and he was wonderful to me even though I was too shy to approach him.

So HE came up to ME.

I am glad to see they are still working in his name, and I hope he isn't forgotten. His show was a staple of my life growing up, and he taught me that you could be a kind, gentle man without being a push over.

We could all do worse than his example.

Absolutely agree.

I loved Mr. Rogers but was scared to death of Lady Elaine!

Yep. She was scary.

I also agree with Alcon's assessment of that statue.

I always thought Mr. Rogers was boring.

But I'm satisfied that he did a good life's work.

I loved Mr. Rogers. I was happy that my older children got to watch him for a little while.
