“The U.S. Postal Service plans to issue a new stamp [March 23] featuring Mister Rogers, the children’s television host known for his zip-up cardigan, sneakers and soothing manner,” AP reports:
The Forever stamp [can be used even after rate increases] will be unveiled … in the same Pittsburgh public television station where ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ was produced.
The stamp features Fred Rogers and the royal puppet King Friday XIII.
Rogers produced, wrote and hosted ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ for more than 30 years. He died in 2003 at 74.
His message remained a simple one throughout the years: He told his viewers to love themselves and others.
