Rooney was 59 when he began on "60 Minutes" in July 1978 with an
essay about misleading reporting of automobile fatalities on the
Independence Day weekend. He became a regular contributor, delivering
sometimes folksy, sometimes peppery observations on ordinary life under
the title, "A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney."
He had been hospitalized after suffering "serious complications" following minor surgery last month.
I hope you RIP.
I enjoyed your wit, humor and insight.
