|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Jesus > Religion
Comedian Lewis Black once talked about how a person can never see something (like a certain commercial) until it is mentioned by a friend. Then they'll see it constantly:
Over the past five years, this has been the recurring theme of my life when it comes to Mister Rogers. Sure, since I've started the Archive, my neighbor-senses have been heightened; but the countless random references to Mister Rogers seen everywhere in our society show evidence of how widespread his influence was and continues to be.
Take this morning, for example.
I had just started reading a new book called Jesus > Religion by Jefferson Bethke and there it was -- only 12 pages in and I'm faced with the name I cannot seem to escape (although, I don't really try).
Mister Rogers. He's everywhere.
