Remembering Mister Rogers

Jason English

It was seven years ago today that we lost Mister Rogers. Back in 2007, Mangesh put together a list of 15 reasons Mister Rogers was the best neighbor ever, which became one of our most popular stories. Here's a video of the time he went to Washington to save public broadcasting. And when we held our 'Readers & Their Famous Friends' photo submission contest, Michael Geier's picture with Mister Rogers won the gold (scroll down).

Rest in Peace, neighbor.
