    Default another sad day for the baby boomers

    I just heard that Captain Kangaroo died. A real sad week for the Chicago guys and a sad day for the rest of us.

    Bob Keeshan was one of the kindest and noblest men to grace the TV screen.
    As he got older, his peers criticized him for not changing with the times, but Captain Kangaroo refused to do it, not so much that he had the "winning" formula, but because he believed in what he did was the right thing for children.
    With his supporting cast of Mr. Green Jeans, Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose, Grandfather Clock and an occasional visit from the Banana Man, the Captain's show would be my escape for many years.
    He was a good man. He was good for our nation's children; one of the few positives.
    What a way to start the day!
    Rest in peace, Captain Kangaroo.
