Re: OT: Fred Rogers
- i also think it's very sad, he seemed like a nice guy who wanted to
impart a message of self-worth to children and adults. he was
frequently parodied and i may have chuckled a few times, but
attacking symbols of innocence like mr rodgers or barney is a
symptom of depression and self-loathing. cynical comedians liked to
imply that his gentle manner was effimenate or that his concern for
children was unhealthy, and it's just a cheap shot, why not lampoon
the powerful and corrupt? that takes balls.
