urban legend.
he was never a sniper.

------------------
WTTW's member magazine, Chicago's local PBS affiliate, had an interesting profile on Fred Rogers on the 30th anniversary of Mr. Rogers' neighborhood. Here are the highlights:

1951 - Graduated from Rollins College with a degree in music composition.

1951 - 53 - Hired by NBC, became assistant director for _The Voice of Firestone_ and floor director for _The Lucky Strike Hit Parade_ and the _Kate Smith Hour_.

1953 - 1960 - Returned to Pittsburgh to WQED and developed _The Children's Corner_.

1962 - Attended Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, ordained by the Pittsburgh Presbytery.

1963 - Moves to Toronto and produces a children's program called _Misterogers_ for the CBC.

1964 - Returns again to WQED to produce _Mister Rogers' Neighborhood_ which continues to this day.

So, Mr. Rogers' didn't get the chance to participate as a sniper or any other capacity in any US police action in this century.

I HATED the puppet part of the show...The faces had this evil look masked by a smile...I liked when he visited places outside of his house...

I remember Mr. Wizard...That man was too cool...I used to wake up early to watch it before school...

i loved mr. rogers' neighborhood. in the beginning of the show when he'd say hello to all the kiddie viewers. he's say something like "i see you" or something. my brother and i thought that he could really see us, so we would try to hide behind the furniture. so when he said the line, we always thought that we'd been caught. mr. rogers was a crafty guy, being able to see through the television and all.

and the land of make believe was awesome. i wanted to live there. some people of my aquaintance would claim that i do.

when i heard the news this morning, i got a little teary. sniff.
