"Did you ever grow anything in the garden of your mind?"
PBS Digital Studios grew an idea for a remix:
When we discovered video mash-up artist John D. Boswell, aka melodysheep, on YouTube, we immediately wanted to work together. Turns out that he is a huge Mister Rogers Neighborhood fan, and was thrilled at the chance to pay tribute to one of our heroes. Both PBS and the Fred Rogers Company hope you like John's celebration of Fred Rogers' message.

On last night's The Last Word, Lawrence O'Donnell reported that Mitt Romney used to brag about impersonating a police officer:
When Mitt Romney wasn't gay bashing kids whose hair he didn't like, Mitt Romney 's other favorite sick thing to do was to impersonate a police officer. In an exclusive article just released tonight by the National Memo, details emerge of a Mitt Romney who as a college freshman at Stanford University allegedly admitted to fellow dorm mates that he sometimes disguised himself as a police officer, and laid out on his bed was a Michigan state trooper's uniform. One of the people who saw the uniform said he told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father, George Romney , then the governor of Michigan, whose security detail was staffed by uniform troopers. he told us that he was using it to pull over drivers on the road. 'He also had a red flashing light that he would attach to the top of his white rambler. We thought it was all pretty weird....'

Organizers of a Facebook group warning that blood will flow in the streets of Split, Croatia if the gay parade happens posted a photo of bombs intended to harm marchers today.
I reported on the page once before back in March, but it's still live.
According to Reuters: "Several nationalist and war veteran groups have issued warnings against this year's June 9 march in Split, calling it a shameful provocation by sick people to which we will respond'".
Several government officials have pledged to join the march, calling it a test of the nation's democracy ahead of its plan to join the European Union.
