Mr. Rogers vs. The Senator

Keeping the Mr. Rogers references alive, here's a video of Mr. Roger's speaking to a US senator--Senator Pastore--about twenty million dollars of funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in 1969. The video speaks for itself, so click here and watch.

    All can think about is my "inner-trauma"... I am to ADD to watch Roger's southern-drawl his way through a speach.

    Hi Mark..Anna's mom Judi here. Her Blog has your link so I was exploring and listened to the Mr. Rogers plea for 20 million for PBS...which he got!! I guess it was the words to the MAD song that convinced the senator!!
