Your Sunday TV line-up, plus a long-ago interview as a special birthday tribute to Mr. Rogers, who would have turned 93 this weekend.
March 21, 2021

"Sometimes things don't go right in The Neighborhood."

Not the quote we always associate with Fred Rogers, but a fine one, nonetheless. The icon would have turned 93 yesterday.

Here's another more serious moment, when he testified before Congress, and ended up changing the course of children's television history for the better.

I think I'll spend some time watching and learning from this guy.

******************

Here's your Sunday morning line-up, according to ABC News:

ABC’s “This Week” — Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas; Gov. Doug Ducey, R-Ariz.; Reps. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, and Judy Chu, D-Calif.

NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Mayorkas; Sens. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., and Roy Blunt, R-Mo.
