So Fred Rogers is gone from us, and yes, he was a gentle soul, and an accepter of feelings, but let me now praise something a little less..."misterogerian."

He wrote GREAT cliffhangers. I don't know if Mr. Rogers watched soaps or read Trollope, but he always knew how to leave you hanging---what was King Friday mad about? What was Lady Elaine about to say? on a Friday so you'd come back on a Monday. And for kids like me--too big to admit we watched, too attracted by the story line to look away--that's what hooked us.
