As someone who grew up watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood and then met Fred Rogers in adulthood, I can tell you it was a surreal, blissful, enduring experience. Benjamin Wagner, a vice president at MTV, enjoyed a few brushes with Rogers when the performer was summering next door to Wagner on Nantucket, and his recollections form the introduction of this 2010 eulogy, a road trip in which the video maker asks media types, activists, and religious figures (Tim Russert, Linda Ellerbee, Davy Rothbart) how Rogers's message of simplicity, self love, and neighborliness inspired their own work and worldview. Roll your eyes if you want—he liked you just the way you are.
