I think that Mr. Rogers is probably one of the most saintly people in recent history. OK, there is Gandhi and the like, but Mr. Rogers has to be up there. His message was really one of undiluted goodness and virtue. For an example that can inspire, check out Mr. Rogers testifying before the Senate in 1969, during hearings about establishing the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Did you know he's an ex-Navy SEAL and that he always wore the long sleeved shirts and sweaters to cover the tattoos on his forearms?

I wrote that before I watched the clip. Amazing, simply amazing. The thread of non-viloence philosophy is evident. I wish he was still alive.

I saw a profile on him once that said the he exercised by swimming naked laps in a pool!

But his message was just undiluted goodness.
