Perhaps, in order to forget the craziness of the world and really concentrate on ourselves, the thing is to do is read The World According to Mister Rogers, a new book of the sayings and thoughts of our favoritest neighbor, Fred Rogers. His wife, Joanne, tells CNN, "Most of the people who read this book will feel as if they're having a visit with him...It's not a book for children, not a book for children but a book for people who had watched the show over the years -- grown-up children who were familiar with his program and who knew him."
Gothamist also appreciated learning from the CNN article that Mr. Rogers would watch Monty Python with his grandchildren. Yet another sign of how cool he was.
