I remember the first time I saw "National Velvet" with Andy Rooney and Liz Taylor, I thought Rooney was cute. I was a kid at the time and had no concept of just how long ago that movie was made. When I saw Andy Rooney on 60 minutes a few weeks later, I was shocked and a little disturbed. But I've always enjoyed his commentary, and he will be missed.
While I'll miss him , he seems to have lived a full life on his own terms.
He got to speak his mind every week and got well paid for the effort.
When you look up "curmudgeon" in the dictionary there should be a picture of
Mr Rooney, but under the supposed ire there was a twinkle in his eye.
Well done Sir and rest in peace.
