It's A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood: Mister Rogers Honored With A USPS Forever Stamp

The United States Postal Service has just announced it will be releasing a Mister Rogers Forever Stamp on March 23rd to celebrate his legacy and the contributions he made to the lives of so many children (myself included). Obviously, I'm going to buy a lifetime supply (about forty) so everything I mail from now on will be sent with kindness, love, and caring. Heck yeah, Mister Rogers -- MISTER ROGERS IS FOREVER. Just like Wu-Tang, who is also for the children and will hopefully receive their own stamp one day.

Thanks to Charlotte, for reminding me I should totally spend a solid hour watching old Mister Rogers' Neighborhood clips on Youtube in a bathroom stall instead of going to that 'mandatory' staff meeting.

    Pretty sure the song goes "It's a beautiful day in THIS neighborhood."

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    "I think it's wonderful. I think it's wonderful. Looks like you just earned the 20 million dollars." - Senator John Pastore, beguiled by the charms of Mister Rogers.

    Gotta say, I'm still impressed that Mr. Rogers has been consistently on the right side of history with everything he's done.

    Granted maybe telling every kid who watched that they're unique and special caused some issues but that's not because the message was bad. That was more because the people hearing it were bad and used the idea of being special and unique as an excuse to be bad.

    For those with young children, Daniel Tiger on PBS is one big Mr. Rogers reference and a good show.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I like to make up horrible words for the songs on that show (or really any kids' song). For example "If you feel so mad that you're gonna roar, pull your hand back and slap a whore".

    Of course I can't remember any of the others I came up with since they took it off of Netflix.

  • Munihausen

    Hah, those jingles are quite burned into my brain. I never caught it on Netflix, but the PBS mobile app has been very useful.

  • GeneralDisorder

    My second daughter was thoroughly obsessed with Daniel Tiger.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Fred Rogers was a literal angel. Too good for this cold, dark world.
