Considering that Fred Rogers
1. Went directly into college from High School
2. Went directly into Broadcast TV from college
3. Took breaks from television only for seminary studies
4. and was born in 1928, making him too old to be in active combat in Vietnam

That being said, I consider both Capt. Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers heros. Not because they marched into sheeplike positions of military service, but because they dedicated their lives to education.

As for your comment on books, I'm not sure what you were aiming for, I'll guess that it was wit. However, as usual you missed the mark.

Besides, let us say, for one X-Philed moment, that Mr. Rogers was a sniper and his true identity was covered up in a secret conspiracy. In that case, I would consider Mr. rogers a hero, not for shooting people from a long distance away, but for what he did in education.

Merely because I approve of something a person does, does not mean I must consider all their actions worthy.

Sorry, rat, by your own worthless standards, you haven't provided proof of any kind that Mr Rogers wasn't a SEAL. Therefore he wasm by the accpted practice of the brain-damaged karma-believers.
