That's all right , Alicia, we like you just the way you are---crying in front of the tv eating milkbones. Seriously, I flipped it on a couple of times and didn't see Lady Elaine. Well, my kids were all grown, so I thought Mr. Rogers didn't use her any more. My 20 something 6'4" weightlifting son came up for a drink of water, and I said, "I think they've fired Lady Elaine Fairchild. I don't think she's on Mr. Rogers any more." And my son, Mr. Macho said, "They can't do that, can they?" We were both so upset over a puppet! Mr. Rogers made his shows here in Pittsburgh. His home was in Latrobe, about 25 miles from me. He's retiring, but don't worry; there are lots of taped shows, and he'll always be our neighbor! Did you know he's an ordained minister?
