In a Wall Street Journal article this week, Don Chance, a professor at Louisiana State University, sees a problem with students who feel entitled and decided, “We can blame Mister Rogers … he’s representative of a culture of excessive doting.”
“You’re special.” On the Yahoo Answers Web site, a discussion thread about Mr. Rogers begins with this posting: “Mr. Rogers spent years telling little creeps that he liked them just the way they were. He should have been telling them there was a lot of room for improvement. … Nice as he was, and as good as his intentions may have been, he did a disservice.”
Talking bad about Mr. Freakin’ Rogers!?
Are you kidding me?
Screw you, Don Chance, and the high horse you rode in on. Put down your misguided notions and step away from Mr. Freakin’ Rogers.
You want to know who to blame for any child that feels entitled? You want to know who to blame for lazy ass kids who don’t want to work for anything?
The parents who raised them that way, not the kind man in the sweater and sneakers who showed PittGirl how crayons are made.
Excuse me while I ride the trolley to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and make believe that Don Chance is getting his eyes clawed out by Henrietta Pussycat.
