More on Fred Rogers

As a follow up to yesterday’s blog about Fred Rogers and all of his contributions to our children over the years, I thought you would enjoy this bit of history.

This is a little longer than most things I post (7 minutes), but perhaps you will find it interesting as I did.

Fred Rogers testifying at the Senate hearings in 1969 about funding for public television–$20,000,000.  A lot at stake.  Mr. Rogers may have seemed like a light-weight, but he sure knocked a strong punch when it counted.
