    From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), "Won’t You Be My Neighbor?" takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers.

    A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.

    I wonder if that’s why the Mr. Rogers documentary is re-airing on PBS for three days.

    If it's playing near you, go see this. You will not be disappointed. For someone my age, Mr. Rogers was every bit as important as Sesame Street.
    (Katzi428 and myself go as far back, before there was PBS, there was NET). The man was incredible. For a Presbyterian minister to make his ministry in television (a medium he sometimes hated for all the garbage disguised as children's programming) was a colossal feat. Until his death (not long after 9/11) he kept struggling with good and evil in the world. Good won out.

    I had never liked the idea of referencing an attack or series of attacks only some numbers and a slash or the idea of doing so only by a calendar date (without the year).

    The more we make a huge deal of the event, the more we realize that the terrorists won.

    I had never made a big or huge deal out of any sort of attack.

    In case the author of this message was referencing the movie mentioned here earlier, I would say I would hope to discuss it here if I were to have had the chance to see it in its entirety.

    I would only get to chance to see it in its entirety if I were able to do so (note: as of this writing, I am in no position to do so).
