    15 reasons Mr. Rogers was best neighbor ever

    [size=13pt]15 reasons Mr. Rogers was best neighbor ever[/size]

    Here are 15 things everyone should know about Fred Rogers:

    I love this one

    8. He could make a subway car full of strangers sing. Once while rushing to a New York meeting, there were no cabs available, so Rogers and one of his colleagues hopped on the subway. Esquire reported that the car was filled with people, and they assumed they wouldn't be noticed.

    But when the crowd spotted Rogers, they all simultaneously burst into song, chanting "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood." The result made Rogers smile wide.

    2. He made thieves think twice. According to a TV Guide piece on him, Fred Rogers drove a plain old Impala for years. One day, however, the car was stolen from the street near the TV station. When Rogers filed a police report, the story was picked up by every newspaper, radio and media outlet around town.

    Amazingly, within 48 hours the car was left in the exact spot where it was taken from, with an apology on the dashboard. It read, "If we'd known it was yours, we never would have taken it."
    Good stuff.
    He wasn't pilfering money for personal lear jets it appears.

    "It is a beautiful day in the neighbourhood" are not the lyrics of an Ugly Kid Joe song?

    Almost too good to be true...proof positive that there is good in this world.

    Now if only the Vikings would hurry up and win the Super Bowl...proving further that there is even more good in this world.

    He's got the look of a serial killer....or the guy in the white van that pulls up and asks you if you'd like to try some candy.
    I wouldn't mess with him.

    Mr. Rogers and Bob Ross had something in common...........

    I used to love to get stoned and watch them when I had nothing else to do.
    Of course I am much wiser and older and don't do that anymore.
    ;D

    3. He watched his figure to the pound. In covering Rogers' daily routine (waking up at 5 a.m.; praying for a few hours for all of his friends and family; studying; writing, making calls and reaching out to every fan who took the time to write him; going for a morning swim; getting on a scale; then really starting his day), writer Tom Junod explained that Mr. Rogers weighed in at exactly 143 pounds every day for the last 30 years of his life.

    Is that even possible without cheating? Come on...

    I like this picture of him better. ;D
