The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

27 February 2003

It's a terrible day in the neigborhood

Fred Rogers, always "Mister Rogers" to your kids and mine, lost his battle with stomach cancer this morning. He was 74 years old; his PBS series had run for thirty-two years.

I'll miss the guy. He was one of the few hosts on children's TV who wasn't trying to sell action figures and snacks.

(Update, 1:20 pm: Weetabix, as always, says it beautifully.)
