Like many people who don't always watch 60 Minutes, I tuned in to catch Andy Rooney's last commentary last night. I don't know what it is about the show. I used to watch 60 Minutes all the time in the '60s and '70s, but then I lost interest. Or maybe life got in the way. It's also on TV too early in Sacramento.
I recall telling some of the shady guys I knew in the get-rich-quick seminar business that they probably did NOT want 60 Minutes to show up on their doorstep. Even though I have nothing to hide, I'd be perfectly happy to never open the door to find Morley Safer standing there. That would be a little unnerving. I don't care who you are. Nobody wants Morley Safer at the door.
But everybody wants to shake Andy Rooney's hand. And get his autograph.
Andy Rooney said just what I expected him to say. Nothing more and nothing less. He said a writer writes. He will always be a writer. I can relate to that. It's true.
Rooney thinks about death -- and he doesn't like those thoughts. Who does? I imagine for years and years, long after we are all dead and gone, CBS will continue to show clips of Andy Rooney. There is a certain sense of self satisfaction to get to be who you are in the business world and get paid for it to boot. I know that first hand. Rooney's pieces are timeless. There will never be another.
