Mr. Rogers goes to Washington

I like that what Mr. Rogers brings to this testimony is not fame (it was only 1969 and his show wasn’t well-known) but his simple, clear, and guileless message. I’m definitely reminded, too, of Andy’s maxim that the best—indeed the only—way to change the culture is to create more of it.
