I don't know; I don't have a problem with Mr Roger's (TM all Rights Reserved) message, persay, but rather the medium by which it is transmitted and which by virtue of the message's virtue gains legitimacy. TV is no substitute for real human contact, and I believe that proper relationships with people can only be accomplished by practice; to push our children dumpster-plow style against this sweet old man, believing him capable and necessary to carry their burden of proper upbringing, is ridiculous! I imagine most people stop at Mr. Roger's forays into the world, foregoing similar treks for their children, as if what's on the tv is sufficient. No! No siree Bob! This seriously strains my brain, it's such a difficult concept to communicate... Okay, it's essentially like "The Cable Guy" movie: the TV should really be raising our kids? No insult against the man himself, but when you become an image on the screen there is a "split," you're no longer just your flesh and blood, your image becomes putty for a nebulous culture to imprint meaning and utility onto. And what is the meaning and utility of Mr. Rogers? It's stuffy old people serving their kids microwaved mashed potatoes weeks straight because they have starry eyes for the fantasy of the better world.
