Mr. Rogers was cool. As children, my brother and I took part in the University of Pittsburgh's child development studies in which Mr. Rogers and his close friend and associate Dr. McFarland were heading. I got to meet Mr. Rogers and play with his son when he came to visit Arsenal Center where these studies took place. I also had the chance to visit Mr. Rogers home. I still remember swimming in his backyard pool...the man was truly a genuine and decent person.

He taught me the value of taking off my outdoor sneakers and putting on my indoor sneakers. To be quite honest he frightened me..I'm canadian so i grew up with Mr.Dressup instead, who come to think of it frightened me to. It was that puppet Casey..
