Andy Rooney has passed away at age 92;

Quote
Andy Rooney, the "60 Minutes" commentator known to generations for his wry, humorous and contentious television essays - a unique genre he is credited with inventing - died Friday night in a hospital in New York City of complications following minor surgery. He was 92, and had homes in New York City, Rensselaerville, N.Y. and Rowayton, Conn.


Gone on to the big TV studio in the sky...

What I liked about Andy was his ability to dissect little bits of society and make it into a study.  My dad and I used to watch him on 60 Minutes and he always left me entertained.  RIP Mr. Rooney.  You led a good live.

I didn't always agree with him, but I always enjoyed listening.  RIP

a unique figure. He did alot with that little time slot. One I was thinking of a while back was when he was talking about baths. He talked about how people take them less than they used to but didn't offer an opinon till the end when he said something like " why would you want to lay in a soup of your own filth?"

Did you ever notice how we take some folks who have been around forever for granted and only when they're gone do we realize how much they'll be missed?

RIP, Mr. Rooney.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
