Andy Rooney, the gruff commentor from Sixty Minutes, has passed away a month after he had retired from regular duties on that show. He was 92.
His commentaries were sometimes brilliant, sometimes banal, and oftimes curmudgeonly. He had been doing his "A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney" segment for some thirty years. He had become such a mainstay on television that I feel a small piece of me has died.
