Andy Rooney

Over the years, I have come across and appreciated Andy Rooney's quotes from random sources. Initially, I had no idea who he was. Later I came to know that he was an American broadcaster. His weekly appearance on CBS  made "60 Minutes"  a very popular TV show. Millions watched and listened to his homespun wisdom and peeves which he aired week after week, from the seventies till now. In October 2011, a few days after his final broadcast at the age of 92, Andy Rooney Died in New York.
