'A few minutes' with Andy Rooney becomes 91 years

Rooney moves slowly and doesn't hear that well, and his handwriting is shaky. But he makes few allowances for age. Six years after the death of his wife, Marge, he has a girlfriend. Rooney calls her simply "my friend." Ref. Source 4

Andy Rooney History & Civil Business Politics

Longtime CBS News commentator Andy Rooney has died, CBS News reported Saturday. He was 92.

He had been hospitalized after suffering "serious complications" following minor surgery last month.

Rooney got his start in journalism during World War II, when he wrote for the Stars and Stripes, and he joined CBS in 1949 as a writer for Arthur Godfrey's radio and television entertainment show.

He went on to collaborate between 1962 and 1968 on a series of essays with his friend, the late newsman Harry Reasoner.

He joined "60 Minutes" in 1978, according to CBS, beginning decades of show-ending essays on topics as varied as looking for a job ("We need people who can actually do things. We have too many bosses and too few workers. More college graduates ought to become plumbers or electricians, then go home at night and read Shakespeare."); his bushy eyebrows ("I try to look nice. I comb my hair, I tie my tie, I put on a jac ket, but I draw the line when it comes to trimming my eyebrows. You work with what you got."); the "shock and awe" campaign that started the Iraq War in 2003 (the phrase "makes us look like foolish braggarts.")

Rooney announced on October 2, 2011, in his 1,097th essay for "60 Minutes" that he would no longer appear regularly. Ref. CNN
