Michael S Obit: Fred McFeely Rogers (1928-2003) (61* d) RE: Obit: Fred McNeely Rogers 27 Feb 03

You'll notice that there do not exist any Mr. Rogers Board Games, nor lunch boxes, nor scale models of the neighborhood complete with plastic characters. I've read that Fred Rogers received many overtures for such endeavors and he declined them all, thereby declining the opportunity to become fabulously wealthy.

His reason--he said he never wanted a single child to feel bad because his/her parents couldn't afford to buy the latest Mr. Rogers toy.

RIP Mr. Rogers,
