60 Minutes curmudgeon will be missed

November 08, 2011

While I constantly found myself disagreeing with the ageless commentaries of Andy Rooney, his recent retirement and sudden passing creates a void in the fields of television and journalism that will be difficult to fill. Fortunately, his sage comments will be a permanent part of the passing parade in his writings and books for generations to follow.

I think that he considered his position in history some years ago when he wrote, "No, I'm not committed to being open-minded. You can carry being broad-minded too far. By this time in my life, I know what I know and I know what I think and it's very damned unlikely that I'm going to change."

And so, if you didn't like what he said or wrote, so be it.
