I remember back in the 1% , there was a Burger King commercial that
spoofed Mister Rogers' style and delivery (a guy dressed in a
sweater asking kids ifthey could sarthe words "flame broiling" instead ofthe
words "frying". or something like that). Fred Rogers contacted the Burger King
corporation and merely suggested that while the commercial was humorous
to adults, it might confuse children. who didn' t concept of satire.

Cort-) Fred Rogers made no demands ofthe Burger King Corp. and he
issued no public condemnation ofthe commercial at all. Burger King
IMMEDIATELY commercial with no further questions and issued
a statement that they agreed with Rogers' position and they regretted any
confusion their ad campaign may have caused.
THAT is the level respect a gentle, caring man like Fred Rogers
received during his life. The dude was a saint. period.
