Moved to a new neighborhood

While driving to work this morning, I heard that Mister Rogers died overnight. I've never gotten upset about a celebrity dying before, but this made me really sad.

My mother and I had a debate about him once. She didn't like him because she thought he made boys "turn gay" (because he was too nice and too soft-spoken, and they might copy him). Sigh. She has improved some (mostly because she's pretty sure I'm gay, which I'm not, but she never believes me when I try to correct her). Oddly, a number of folks have thought I was gay. I mostly find that amusing, though I do wonder what makes them think that...

I was thinking about all sorts of things to write here, things along the lines of 'George Bush should watch more Mister Rogers's Neighborhood' or that Georgie should be more like him, but I don't want to turn this into some sort of political debate. I think he was a good man, I think he did good things for the world, and it's sad that he's gone.
