“It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor. Would you be mine? Could you be mine?” Today is “Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day,” in honor of what would have been Fred Rogers’ 87th birthday.
Happy birthday, Mister Rogers, from all your friends at PBS!

Okay but what if there was PBSTeens?

Not PBS, not PBSKids/Go. PBSTeens. And while there are some new shows, what if old ones came back in a new way? Think about it, teenaged Cybersquad is helping you solve Algebra and Geometry, teenaged Wordgirl is teaching a higher vocabulary, Greek and Latin roots, and translating Shakespeare, and Arthur and the gang are going through highschool, facing and overcoming/coping with several of the same problems you are going through.

“As men of science we should be curious and bold enough to peer beyond it into the many wonders it conceals. I shall not dwell on the secrets of the human body in sickness and in health. Today, I want to talk to you of a greater marvel: the soul of man. My analysis of the human psyche leads me to believe that man is not truly one…but truly two. One of him strives for the nobilities of life. This we call his good self. The other seeks an expression of impulses that bind him to some dim animal relation with the earth. This we call the bad. These two carry out an eternal struggle in the nature of man, yet they are chained together. And that chain spells repression to the evil. Remorse to the good. Now, if these two selves could be separated from each other how much freer the good in us would be. What heights in might scale. And the so called evil, once liberated would fulfill itself and trouble us no more. I believe that day is not far off when this separation will be possible.”
