    Re: Andy Rooney Dead at 92

    Andy Rooney's last word:

    Why is it when people die, the nicest things are said about them? Why couldn't those nice things have been said during life? And now that I am dead, why am I in this elaborate wooden casket? Would people like to save money when their loved ones die? The funeral industry would say "Of course not, you want your loved ones to be sent off in the richest style available". They don't ask MY opinion at all. After all, I am dead. My opinion no longer matters. But since I am dead, am I really going to notice my surroundings, and the plush satin that I am laying on? Am I really going to care? Of course not. So just bury me beneath an old oak tree, and let me feed it, instead of feeding vampire funeral directors. And let my relatives drink a toast to me with the money they saved by not squandering it because some asshole at a funeral parlor made them feel guilty. See you in heaven, folks.

    A true national treasure. He lived a great life and did it his way.

    R.I.P. Andy. I often tuned to 60 Minutes on Sunday just to see your commentary.

    I also looked forward to his spot on 60 minutes.

    But is it me or did he just come off a little self absorbed in his farewell interview. His complaining about fans wanting an autograph was a little pathetic. I don't picture fans hounding him like they would Britney Spears but showing a little class would be nice. Just felt he could have left a better image than that interview.

    Andy Rooney passes at 92

    I didn't like his politics, but he was a vet, so I'll give him that.

    Andy Rooney, whose prickly wit was long a mainstay of CBS News and whose homespun commentary on ď60 Minutes,Ē delivered every week from 1978 until 2011, made him a household name, died on Friday in New York City.

    I enjoyed him in his heydays.

    RIP Andy

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Cool grumpy old man. We should all aspire to be old, witty, and eloquent at an old age.
