Andy Rooney, RIP

It was just a few weeks ago that Andy Rooney delivered his final “A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney” on “60 Minutes,” the penultimate segment on the newsmagazine for more than 30 years. Rooney died last night at age 92 of complications following minor surgery, according to CBS News.

Variety’s obit is here.

Morley Safer: “Underneath that gruff exterior was a prickly interior, and deeper down was a sweet and gentle man, a patriot with a love of all things American, like good bourbon, and a delicious hatred for prejudice and hypocrisy.”

CBS News’ obit is below.
