One of the great dry wits. I will miss him. But where he is going there will be lots for him to comment about.

Sorry to see Mr Rooney go. He made being a curmudgeon almost fashionable. Always funny and thought-provoking w/in just a few minutes.

"Did you ever wonder..."

Personally I was not a fan, but I did appreciate his take on things.

At the risk of sounding flip I am going to say ...

"This really bothers me..."

as that phrase was often spoken by Andy in his many observations regarding the obsurdities of everyday life.

And he was often spot on.

RIP Andy Rooney

I agree - he was good in small doses - REAL small....

Iconic in an understand way. He made his mark in journalism and helped define it. There was a time whe there was just the news. There were no news shows that explored and did in depth interviews, because nobody in mainstream media thought that people would want to watch such things. But there were the bold, inspired journalists who wanted to do more than just report the news. They wanted to make America think. Andy was one of those. He will be missed.

Andy said during his last broadcast that there are no originals thoughts. There is, however, original perspective. One of my favorite broadcasters and writers, Andy gave us new perspective, always making me wonder "why didn't I think of that"?
May he rest in peace and thanks, Andy, for the laughs. I said I would truly miss him when he left 60 Minutes. Now he is gone for good. The world is a sadder place without him. RIP Andy Rooney.
