    He is such a wonderfully nice, decent and God fearing man.  I wish there were more of them in this world.

      Hmmm… God fearing? I dunno. I always associate that term with passive aggressive intolerance. Mr. Rogers is such a decent human being he’s one of the few people I can imagine who would profess his faith but truly—and I mean TRULY—never judge others.

      This guy is past mensch. He’s amazing.  And this interview is so amazing. Thanks for posting.

  2. I wish more of us that listened and watched him as a kid would have heeded his world view.

    Cory and the Boing Boing set will also enjoy how Fred was a defender of people’s right to copy TV shows with the VCR. His testimony was an influence on the crucial Supreme Court ruling that legalized the device. As a TV host, he actually appreciated viewers’ ability to have more control over when they watched his show.

    “…they then become much more active in the programming of their family’s television life. Very frankly, I am opposed to people being programmed by others.”

    His Wiki entry has more of his testimony, and a link to Cornell’s copy of the court ruling.
