"Won't You Be My Neighbor?"

Wonderful movie about Fred Rogers!

I was a little old for Mister Rogers, more my sisters' watching material, so I watched the movie in a spirit of curiosity. There a was a round of applause from the audience at the end.

Preparing to exit the theater, a man asked, "Are you from Pittsburgh?" I said no, and asked why he asked. "Oh, it's because I'm from there, and Fred Rogers is one of the icons of the city, right up there with the Pittsburgh Steelers. See my T-Shirt?" I looked at his T-Shirt of a roller coaster. "See? It features an amusement park that anyone from Pittsburgh will recognize." I grinned and thought his hometown enthusiasm was marvelous!
