'Mister Rogers & Me' In USA Today!

Wow! What a day!

I received an email from USA Today Pop Candy Blog Editor Whitney Matheson today. "This is so great," she said of the "Mister Rogers & Me" link I sent her last week. "I just wrote about it. Good luck, and please keep me posted!

I clicked on over to her blog and read her piece, How many lives were changed by Mister Rogers?
I got goosebumps! Then I emailed my brother, called my wife, and emailed Whitney.

"Wow, Whitney. Thank you so much! I have goose bumps. We've been
quietly, diligently and (often) frustratingly plugging away at this
little indie for years. Sometimes it feels like an albatross, like an
impossibly difficult assignment from Mister Rogers himself (I mean, what
do you tell America's Favorite Neighbor when he asks you to "Spread the
message"!?!). So to have it see the light of day for real is really
exciting. I REALLY appreciate it, Whitney, and will absolutely keep you
posted."

Pretty cool.

Thanks, Whitney!
