RIP Andy Rooney (Not my favorite television personality, but respected for being a freethinker.)

Outreach & Events




CBS commentator Andy Rooney has frequently made irreverent comments in his "60 Minutes" commentaries, columns and books. In November 2000, he reminded readers: "The obituaries in the newspapers and on television [of Steve Allen] were well done but none mentioned what ended up being an obsession with Steve. He was a student of the Bible and a dedicated atheist intent on proving the Bible was a seriously flawed book that many people who profess to live by it, don't know or understand."

  1. Oh wow.
    Didn't he just retire a few weeks ago?

  2. Yes. I gather he worked as long as he could but his health was failing. I suppose if we lived to complain publicly, by retiring he may have lost his reason to live :P (Could be a lesson there for bloggers?)
