"yet I tell you, from the sad knowledge of my older experience, that to every one of you a day will most likely come when sunshine, hope, presents and pleasure will be worth nothing to you in comparison with the unattainable gift of your mother's kiss." (Christina Rossetti, "Speaking Likenesses," 1873)

Mister Rogers' Neighborhood at the Heinz History Center

Part of the set of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood is now permanently housed at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh. There was a special event for its opening: a talk by Eliot Daley, then visiting the new display after regular museum hours. The History Center looks like a very amazing place, and I really ought to check it out. The new Mister Rogers exhibit is quite well done - well-staged and wonderfully lighted, and if the waxwork(?) Mr Rogers figure isn't quite lifelike, well.....it's easy to turn away from it to look at the case of props, or King Friday's castle.
