Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Great clip from Senate history

The late Fred Rogers, of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, testified before a US Senate committee on appropriations for public broadcasting in 1969. Then President Richard Nixon wanted to cut the proposed endowment in half since the country was fighting the Vietnam War. Rogers' passion convinces Senator Pastore of the importance of funding programs such as his.

Watch it here.

Thank you Metafilter.
