I knew someone who actually threw up on Mr Rogers. a coworker and her husband were riding on a small plane to Martha Vinyard, sitting across from Mr Rogers, and her husband got airsick and barfed on his leg. She said he simply said "these things happen"

I grew up watching Mr. Rogers. actually my friend is from Latrobe which is where he was from. they used to sit in front of him at church.


also western PA (actually Butler, my hometown) was where the first Jeep was made. and Brett Michaels, the lead singer from Poison is from Butler too. :cool:

PA has so much great history, how about Arnold Palmer, or Hersheys Chocolate!
