learn something new every day

did you know that Mr Rogers once had his car stolen?  and that because they considered him to be the world's nicest person, when the thieves figured out whose car it was, they brought it back?  
I didn't, but I am glad I now do.  
I learned that and other things from a Tank Riot podcast, via boing boing.  

I watched and loved a lot of PBS as a kid. (did you know there's a new Electric Company?  Hey you guys!  or that the dvds of the original episodes of Sesame Street were deemed not suitable for children? today's kids are wimps.)

So, it made me really happy when I learned that, years before I was born, Mr. Rogers went to Congress and saved PBS.

and to the Supreme Court to save the VCR.
